I know we are a month into spring already, but I figured this was as good a time as any to wrap up winter with some pictures. Maybe you will see something of interest for next winter.
One of my weekly follows is Bake at 350’s Sweet on Trader Joe’s posts. She and her son pick out a new treat each week and review them. In general, I have agreed wholeheartedly with their favorites, so I look forward to what goodies I should pick up from there! Well, I was catching up on all of the older posts in the series and came across the cookie butter cheesecake. That sounded delicious. I rushed to Trader Joe’s and searched frantically, but to no avail. Where was it?? I ended up asking the cashier who said it was a seasonal item. As in, only around Christmas time. What? Boo! So, I decided to make my own version.
Since then, I notice they have cookie butter cheesecake bites in their frozen aisle, but that’s not as impressive as pulling out a whole big cheesecake. So, I made a whole big cheesecake.
