#EatDrinkBeMerry: Cheesecake Bites!
Udi’s Gluten Free emailed me a few weeks ago with the following proposition: they would send me a stunning package of their products in exchange for a recipe featuring one of their products on my blog, for submission in their #EatDrinkBeMerry contest, where they will ultimately give out fantastic prizes [see below, visit their Facebook or Twitter, and enter here!]
Well, of course, I immediately said yes and as soon as their prize package arrived at my apartment, I began to plan my submission. Hopefully this recipe can make its way into your holiday celebrations: Cheesecake Bites!
feat. Udi’s Gluten Free Snicker Doodle Cookies, inspired by my loving grandma.
