Thankful Surprises

For years now a family favorite at Thanksgiving is my pumpkin cheesecake. 

I make it two ways layered and swirled. 

Over the years, I have discovered there is ALWAYS a lot left over in the bowl before I bake them.  It’s so good to lick the spoon, but I’m not sure how safe it is to eat a bowl of raw cheesecake batter.  This year, I decided to make my hubby and daughter a ‘lil  Thanksgiving surprise. 

I baked the remaining batter in these cute ‘lil heart shaped foil baking liners I had.  I wanted to make them look like a present, so I gathered some scrapbook paper, construction paper, scissors, glue, fall ribbon and our espresso shot glass to stencil the circles. 
I glued the circles together and wrote their names on the tags.  BUT they need a ‘lil something don’t they?
I cut out some ‘lil leaves from another sheet of scrapbook paper.  Doesn’t that look better?
If you’re a jewelry maker, then you must have a bead reamer. They make GREAT hole punchers too!
TA-DA!!! Aren’t they cute?? 
This is the ‘lil yummy surprise inside!
They both LOVED them. It was just a ‘lil extra something just for them to let them know I love them and I am so very thankful for them both.
