Notes

When it comes to mixing up your cream cheese filling regardless of using Dairy Free cream cheese or regular cream cheese, always make sure that you let it sit out and come to room temperature. This will give you that silky, velvety, luxurious texture that is free of lumps.
Convection Ovens vs Traditional Oven
In convection ovens, the fan promotes even heat distribution, allowing you to bake at a slightly lower temperature. Reduce the recommended baking temperature by approximately 25°F when using a convection oven compared to a standard oven.

    I made these delicious pieces of Heaven, but with dairy (not the dairy free version) and I had to actively stop myself from eating the entire batch. My family who aren’t gluten free LOVED them and are anxiously awaiting when I will make more.

    I’ve tried many of The Salty Cooker recipes by Danielle. One of my favorites are Cheesecake Sliders. I made two batches for a family picnic: some were topped with blueberry pie filling; others with cherry pie filling.

    Love the creativity of using Hawaiian sweet rolls as the base. What could be easier than that? This recipe is so delicious! I dare you to find any cheesecake recipe that could even compare to these cheesecake sliders!

    I have made these 4 times in the last 4 months and they are amazing! My family and friends who can eat gluten absolutely love when I make these. I use dairy in mine because I am not dairy free FYI. I was missing danishes so much until I found this recipe on Instagram and the best part is how easy they are to make!
