The Pinterest Challenge!

Yep it is Wednesday and I had little Miss April submit a challenge for me. For those of you that are not familiar with the Pinterest challenge here is the scoop: every Wednesday I take a challenge that one of my viewers finds via Pinterest and submits to me. This was Aprils challenge!

Cookies & Cream Cheesecakes!


This beauty is from the cute blog The Girl Who Ate Everything. Though this is a fab recipe found via Pinterest its lots of cals and fat here is her recipe:

42 Oreos, 30 left whole and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds (32 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extractThis
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 275°. Line standard muffin pans with liners. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each liner.

Beat cream cheese at medium speed using an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar, beating until combined. Beat in vanilla.

Drizzle in eggs, a bit at a time. Beat in sour cream and salt. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.

Divide batter evenly among cookie-lined cups, filling each almost to the top. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until filling is set, about 22 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from tins just before serving. Best served really cold! You can garnish with fresh whipped cream and crumbled Oreos if desired.

Makes 30 cheesecakes.

Now these are the ingredients I think you should be using to help the waist line:

42 WhoNu cookies
2 pounds (32 ounces) fat free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 cup fat free sour cream
pinch of salt

Original recipe: 95 Calories
                 6g fat

Revised recipe: 80 Calories
                     2.4g fat

So if you think about it you obviously will be eating at least 2 of these bad boys right? Well I will be! So if you ate 2 of the original recipe and you wanted to burn them off you would have to jog for 13 minutes or walk for 30. With the revised recipe you would jog for 9 minutes or walk for 20 minutes. You are saving 4-10 minutes this way! And we are talking about calories here not even taking into account the fat you are saving yourself.

Thank you so much April for submitting your challenge I hope this helps you like it did me!
