In honor of the 2014 Minnesota Cheese Festival this Sunday, I decided to make a list of my favorite desserts made with cheese as an ingredient. I love cream cheese in desserts, because it adds a nice savory touch to something sweet and you can never go wrong with salty and sweet in my book!

The Minnesota Cheese Festival takes place this Sunday, May 18 at the State Fairgrounds. There is a morning session from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm and an afternoon session from 2:00 - 6:00 pm. I can't wait to stop by to sample the best cheeses that Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa have to offer as well as beer and wine from local producers! They will also have live music and cooking demos. Tickets are still available for purchase!
