Paula Deen's Cheesecake Cookies: is a simple dessert ~ ten minutes to make and 20 to bake. Chill for a couple of hours in the fridge, then it just needs a little bit of time to set up with the mint leaves and fruit before serving them. We like it best with ½ teaspoon each of almond and vanilla extract in the base, topped with strawberries glazed with an Ameretto/strawberry syrup. mmmmm!!
