How to Bake Mason Jar Cheesecake Recipe In A Snap | Cooking Lessons
My story of a gloomy afternoon where this cheesecake recipe came to the rescue, went like this. That weekend, while I was reading a book, my eldest daughter was also busy fussing around looking for something. She said that she was looking for that DIY art project we did one rainy night.She described it to me in detail, and it struck me. It was the one that I accidentally spilled coffee on! And so I knelt and said sorry. Amazingly, she just said it’s ok but still sadly moved on to draw with her art materials. I felt bad and wanted to make it up to her. Hence, the cheesecake recipe became an idea, that turned into a mother-daughter activity, that led to the most delicious dessert dish we ever had.
This cheesecake recipe is a fun way to bond with your children and serve as a peace offering too. 🙂 Excited to find out just how good it is? Then let’s get on with this dessert recipe. Here we go!

Desserts lighten the heart and pick us up on some of our darkest moments. We all know that. But what makes this cheesecake recipe a tad bit special to me is because it tamed my little monster.
