Cranberry Apple Cheesecake Bites

Arlene Mobley - Flour On My Face
This Cranberry Apple Cheesecake Bites recipe has some of my favorite holiday flavors. Cranberries, apples, cinnamon and cheesecake. It starts out with these cute little mini fillo shells. They make the perfect little base for sweet or savory appetizers.
