Pinterest Love - Desserts

For Father's Day I decided to make two recipes we have been drooling over on Pinterest: Easy Mini Lemon Meringue Pies by Tidy Mom and Mini Snickers Caramel Cheesecakes by Six Sisters Stuff.

Snicker Cheesecake

As you can see, they are not the prettiest looking things. They came out of the oven beautiful, but once they started to cool down they began to shrink.  The recipe called for way too many graham cracker crumbs and not enough butter.  There was also enough cheesecake mixture and snickers to make two 6" cakes.  So, you could easily make 24 of these babies.  The taste was DELICIOUS though. Even if they aren't so nice to look look at.

Mini Lemon Meringue Pies

These were SO YUMMY!  I used 8 short bread cookies, the juice from two lemons, plus a little extra bottled lemon juice to make half a cup.  There was enough of everything to make 12 pies instead of the 9 it says on the website.  They were hard to get out of the muffin pans so I used a butter knife to help slide them out.  I cooled them on a cookie rack and then stuck them in the fridge for a few hours.

Have you made any Pinterest desserts you loved? Send them my way!
