I am sure you have heard the rumor by now that Mardi of Eat. Live. Travel. Write is hosting this round of Hay Hay it’s Donna Day. I was really excited that she said she had the time as I had to beg her to get her entry in last month – sorry about that “gentle” nudge!

Mardi decided to sweeten up HHDD this month with Blackberry Cheesecake Pots.  I made this recipe last Saturday – it did not last long enough to photograph it.  So, I made it again on Sunday, snap some pictures and we shoveled it into our big mouths!  Easy.  Delicious.  Basically cheesecake filling in a cup.  This is one of those fall-on recipes to have when you need a quick dessert for guests.  It has cream cheese, sugar, a little cream, and fruit.  Simple, right!  I did add a little more cream cheese than the recipe called for as well I cut the sugar down a bit and added vanilla bean paste.  Really lovely!  Thank you Mardi for hosting this month’s HHDD and for picking a winning recipe!
