  6. I serve with a variety of both fresh fruit and canned pie filling, chocolate chips, caramel sauce, chopped nuts, whipped cream. So many choices!

These are just one of those fun and easy recipes that you decide to make as a fluke and turn out to be a HUGE hit! Many years ago, when our team was located at a different location with onsite parking we would celebrate birthday regularly and I was kind of the resident party coordinator who also just happened to love to cook for people. One time, I made these little cheesecakes and brought in a variety of toppings for people to pick and choose from and couldn't believe what a hit something so simple was! I asked my supervisor if he had any suggestions of what I should include in my submissions because I had so many recipes floating around in my head I couldn't choose- the first thing he said was "Mini Cheesecakes!"
