Some time ago before the Holidays someone wrote in who had been to a party and had a mini cheesecake that had Oreo cookies in it. She asked the lady that brought it for the recipe but she would not share it and wondered if anyone in our group may have it. I don't remember seeing an answer to it but today ran across this one on Kraft's site and it sounds like it may be just what she had.

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes Recipe

44 Oreo cookies, divided
3 (8oz) pkgs Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
2 oz Baker's white chocolate, melted
1/2 c colored sprinkles
1 1/2 c thawed Cool Whip

Heat oven to 325°
Place 1 cookie in each of 24 cup cake paper lined muffin pan cups. Chop 8 of the remaining cookies; set aside. Beat cream cheese and sugar with mixer until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each just until blended. Gently stir in chopped cookies. Spoon into baking cups. Bake 18 to 20 mins or till centers are set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 3 hours or until chilled. Meanwhile, cut remaining cookies in half. Dip cookie halves halfway in melted chocolate. Place on wax paper covered baking sheet; top with sprinkles. Let stand 15 mins or until chocolate is firm. Top each cheesecake with a dollop of Cool Whip and cookie half before serving.

Bev GA requested crockpot grit recipes in the 3/16 newsletter, as she attempts to replicate a recipe she recently had. The second recipe is done in the oven, but thought i would share it. I know it is from a 2007 newsletter, but no longer know who submitted it.

Spicy Sausage Grits Slow Cooker Recipe

2 cups uncooked regular grits
2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Cheddar cheese soup
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
1 1/2 teaspoons salt - I omit this
1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce or to taste
1/2 pound hot smoked sausage, sliced or your favorite sausage
3 tablespoons butter

Combine first 8 ingredients in a 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in sausage.

* Cover and cook on LOW 4 1/2 hours or until thickened, stirring once after 3 hours. Stir in butter, and serve immediately.

Sausage Substitution Tip: Use Andouille sausage or regular smoked sausage if you find the hot smoked sausage too spicy. If using ground sausage, cook and drain grease before

Baked Reuben Casserole Recipe
Serves about 6

5 to 6 slices of rye bread, divided
3/4 pound thinly sliced corned beef or pastrami (shaved)
1 cup rinsed and well-drained sauerkraut
3/4 cup dill pickles, chopped
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
4 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
1/4 cup Thousand Island salad dressing

Butter a deep 11×7-inch baking dish. Preheat the oven to 350. Cut 3 to 4 pieces of the bread into cubes so that you have 2 cups of bread cubes. Line the bottom of the dish with the bread cubes. Cover with half of the corned beef. Make additional layers in this order: sauerkraut, pickles, caraway seeds, 2 cups of cheese, the remaining beef, and the remaining cheese. With a whisk, beat together the eggs, milk, mustard and Thousand Island dressing until well mixed. Pour over the casserole. Using a blender or food processor, make 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs with the remaining slices of bread. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the top of the casserole. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until set in the center.

Caramelized Pecans Recipe

2 T butter (if unsalted, add a pinch of salt)
2 handfuls of pecans
1/4 C heavy cream
2-3 packets Splenda
2-3 T sugar free praline or pancake syrup
(optional) Nutmeg, or Cinnamon

Melt the butter in a pan.
Add pecans, Splenda, and syrup. Let it start bubbling a bit and then add heavy cream. Make sure the flame isn’t too high or it will burn and curdle. Let it continue bubbling a little until it starts to thicken.

You’ll end up with a sort of creamy caramel type of sauce over the pecans. Right before serving, sprinkle a little nutmeg or cinnamon over the top. Freshly grated is best but use what you have handy.

Variation: Toast a handful of shredded, unsweetened coconut in a little butter then follow the recipe above. Personally, this is my favorite. I love coconut!
