Butterscotch Cheesecake in Bacon Cups by Dee Guelcher
Well if you were like me, you had so many sweets around the holidays that you thought you just couldn't eat anymore. However then a week goes by, and your sweet tooth says other wise. That is what I have found happening to me. I have been trying to resist the urge to bake something sweet to eat. I don't know if I will be able to help myself much longer. Especially when I have fabulous recipes to dream about like Dee Guelcher's Butterscotch Cheesecake in Bacon Cups. Well you probably know that I am a fan of bacon, and butterscotch has always had a place in my heart. I still remember having my first butterscotch candy at my Great Aunts house, she seemed to always have a bowl of them somewhere. Well Dee is a fellow Real Woman of Philadelphia and now a fine bacon connoisseur like myself. Thanks Dee for sharing your great recipe with us here at Bacon Time.
