Let’s do CROCKPOT RECIPES!

Since it’s winter (and I’m getting LOTS of crockpot recipes) I thought it might be different to feature crockpot recipes in one blog post. It’s amazing the things you can cook in one; I have a large (think it’s 9 qt) one and make good use of it.

==================

Crockpot Cheesecake

1 1/2 C. flour
4 T. butter, melted/hot
1 large egg, beaten
3 T. peanut butter
3 T. sugar
24 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 C. ricotta cheese
1 1/2 C. sugar
1/3 C. heavy cream
1 T. vanilla
1 T. lemon juice
2 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 C. preserves, (your choice of flavor) melted

Spray insides of crockpot (6 qt) with
nonstick cooking spray. In medium
bowl mix flour, melted butter, 1 egg-
beaten, peanut butter & 3 T. sugar – mix
well & press into bottom of crockpot into
a crust – prick with a fork.
Place ricotta cheese in a food processor –
blend until smooth. Using an elec. mixer,
in a bowl cream cream cheese, smoothed
ricotta, & remaining sugar on medium speed
until smooth, scraping down sides as needed.
In another bowl mix heavy cream, remaining
eggs & holks, vanilla & lemon juice until well
blended. Add egg mixture to cream cheese
mixture & mix in slowly, turning up speed
on mixer to medium once the liquid has
started to mix in (& won’t splash out). MIx
on medium until just blended. Pour mixture
over crust. Cover & cook on Low 3-4 hours
until center is almost set. (carefully rotate
crock – if you have a removable liner, to
reduce uneven cooking).
Once cooking is done, carefully remove lid
(do not let any liquid drip onto cheesecake).
Place a clean cooking towel over top of
crockpot (be careful not to let the towel
touch the top of the cake). Cool completely
before slicing into 12 pieces.
Melt preserves in a microwaveable dish/
bowl & top slices with melted preserves.
Serves 12
Store any leftovers in fridge or freezer.

=====================

I have a lot more crockpot recipes but
thought I’d do something a little different
& just feature them for a post. They ALL
sound yummy to me (although I’ll have
to admit – I haven’t tried them . . . )

Our weather continues to be unusual for
January in Michigan but I’m not complaining:
it’s been between 30 – 40’s & clear (sometimes
sunny, right now it’s overcast). I am hearing that
we’re supposed to be in for some snow & freezing
rain Friday/Saturday/Sunday – oh joy. Friday
night is my special needs group’s Gym Night
so I’m really hoping it holds off until we all get
home (up to 3 inches snow expected).

It’s been a rather quiet week – I kept waiting for
the text asking for me to babysit but finally today
I heard that my son has his entire kitchen/dining
room/living room floor torn up (I remember he
mentioned he wanted to put down new flooring –
guess he’s making good on that!). Next baby date
is next Friday!

Hope you are all well & warm – enjoy your day!

Hugs;

Pammie
