Just in time for St. Patrick's Day...Mint Cheesecake. I love any kind of cheese cake but this fits the bill to serve for a St. Patrick's Day meal. Especially if you are making the Spinach Alfredo Lasagna! Go Green! :)
16 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
4 tsp. green food coloring
Beat cream cheese, raw sugar and vanilla in your Bosch Mixer with the Bosch Bowl Scraper (Click here!) Add peppermint extract, green food coloring and eggs (one at a time.)
Pour into Oreo Crust*.
Bake 350 degrees for 30-40 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
*You can buy the crust already made or easily make your own with the Bosch Food Processor. (Click here!) The Oreos turn into a fine powder in seconds with the Bosch Food Processor! I simply pressed the fine cookie crumbs into the stainless steel pie pan. (Click Here!)
Note from Paula: Once again this is a to die for mint pie! :) Ours was gone in minutes...no seconds! It is a fun St. Patrick's Day treat or really a great treat for any time. Goes great with a cup of coffee...okay my vice! :)
