I usually have an idea of what I am going to say with a post. This time…I am speechless! That seems to be a theme this week. I was speechless earlier when A Few Short Cuts hit 1400 facebook fans. A Few Short Cuts gained over 100 fans this week! I don’t know what to say! I was/am in shock! It amazes me everyday that you guys come back for more of my recipes, and tips! It’s just little ole’ me!
I was speechless when I was invited to attend Baking with Betty in August at General Mills in Minneapolis. I am still trying to get my brain to grasp that one. I have my plane ticket, and can’t wait to go! Who knows what fun info I will come back with for you guys! I have never been that far north! That is almost to Canada in my book!
Now, back to these little beauties! They made me speechless. I forgot about the recipe. I dug it out of my cabinet of cookbooks, and recipes earlier today. See, I thought I was going to organize it. Instead, I ended up baking…with betty none the less! These are so good. I will have to come hunt you down if you don’t try them!

Now, in a small bowl mix together the softened cream cheese, sugar, and egg.

If desired you can ice the tops!

You can get creative with these and use different flavored cake mixes, or flavor the cream cheese filling! Yum!
Once they are baked it tastes like a little bite of cheese cake in the center! YUM!
