Strawberry Cheesecake Cups Recipe $400 Giveaway #EggItForward

Here in Ontario it’s Thanksgiving weekend which always gets me to thinking of the blessings in my life. As I take the time to truly reflect on my journey, I’m struck by the amazing opportunities, people and gifts I’ve been given. There were times in my life when I had much less, when my health failed, when finances were in the gutter…so many times when people would step in with a gesture of kindness which would change my negative perspective. I can remember right after my first daughter was born I found a homemade meal on my doorstep with a loving note from someone wishing us well. It probably the BEST meal we’ve ever eaten and reminded us that we had folks pulling for us.

With this in mind I’m so happy to have teamed up with This Lil Piglet to invite you all to #EggItForward to someone in your life. We are giving you a chance to win $250 towards your local food bank AND $150 Burnbrae Farms gift basket, including coupons. Details about this fantastic giveaway are at the bottom of the post…way below these delicious photos…oh and be sure to check out This Lil Piglet’s Turtle Pumpkin Cheesecake, you’ll thank me later.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cup base

Now press the graham cracker mixture onto bottoms of 18 paper-lined muffin pan cups; I found it easy using an ice cream scoop.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cups Muffin tin

Set aside the muffin tins and beat cream cheese, remaining sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.

Now pour the cream cheese mixture over crusts in the muffin tins.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cups before baking

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until centers are almost set, then cool completely.

Spread evenly with 1/3 cup strawberry jam, (I was far too generous and ended up with very messy cheesecake cups), garnish with fresh strawberry halves and drizzle with chocolate sauce.

    Hard boiled eggs are a big part of my Polish Thanksgiving dinner! They are served with kielbasa before the big meal.

  2. Holly says

    I use eggs to make Italian Ricotta cheesecake for Thanksgiving. Something my Grandmother made every year. Mine isn’t as good as hers, but it gives us a little piece of her every year on the holidays :)

  3. Yvonne says

    between these wonderful creations and devilled eggs for appetizers before the feast, eggs were well represented at this year’s thanksgiving dinner

  4. Heidi C. says

    We give thanks around Thanksgiving by having a big scrambled eggs and toast breakfast Thanksgiving day morning!

  5. Daraya says

    We give thanks by making pumpkin muffins with eggs! Last year, I hosted a Thanksgiving bake sale and raised a few hundred dollars for charity (and I used eggs in almost all the desserts I made)! :)

  6. Sylvia Zajis says

    I use eggs to make great casseroles such as broccoli or celery casserole and desserts such as the cheesecake cups.
