Guest Blogger- Cooking from a SAHM

Happy Holidays everyone! I am at my parents house, so am super busy spending time with my Mom and Dad and getting ready to celebrate Christmas. I've asked some of my food blogger friends to share recipes with you, in my absence. We start off with Lysska, from Cooking From a SAHM and a decadent Mint Chocolate  Cheesecake! Thanks so much for a fabulous recipe, Lysska!


Hello Everyone,
My name is Alyssa and I have two girls. I'm of course a stay at home mom, and writer/cook of Cooking From A SAHM blog and Cooking From A SAHM Facebook Page :-)  I live in Massachusetts :-) I made this cheesecake last year and it was sooo good, I wanted to share it with you!  I think its kind of festive for Christmas, plus who doesn't love mint and chocolate?

1/4 C Melted Butter

1 package of Andes Mints
2 8oz boxes of cream cheese
1/2 C Sugar
1/4 C Flour

1/4 Tsp Mint Extract

In a bowl mix the cream cheese till creamy, then add flour and sugar. Mix well, add eggs, sour cream,vanilla and mint extract. Pour the filling in the spring form pan. Stack Andes mints about 8 or so of them. And slice them. Sprinkle on top of the cheesecake.. Bake at 350 for 55 minutes. Take it out and put it on a cooling rack.
