Estelle's: WHITE CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE BARSThe Christmas season is all about family and food. Your loved ones look forward to Christmas Eve and tasting all the glorious treats you have prepared for them When the children were younger, we attended the Christmas Eve Candlelight Church Service dressed in our Sunday best, then came home to begin their treasure hunt and savor punch and appetizers. What treasured memories these are. Anyhoo...if you are like me, it's time to gather recipes and decide what is going to be on the table for Christmas Eve. My family loves Cheesecake and this delightful recipe is from the 2008, Kraft FOOD AND FAMILY magazine. It's the perfect time to make sweet memories. This is an easy and affordable sweet surprise for your holiday gathering.....
