    I don’t see the measurements for the cream cheese mixture. Am I missing something? lol

    • They are listed in the ingredients as ‘cheesecake layer’ 🙂

  • These are delicious and so easy to make. Like a lot of your recipes they are heavy on sugar but I just reduced it. I also used mascarpone in place of the cream cheese as I had none. They look and smell amazing

    • Thanks for the wonderful feedback Elly! Enjoy 🙂
