Mini-Cheesecake Recipe

Just in time for the holidays, here’s my mini-cheesecake recipe, which I got from Here’s the original link - Cream Cheese Recipe.

* 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs i use honey grahams
* 1 tablespoon white sugar
* 1 tablespoon margarine, melted

* 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
* 1/4 cup white sugar
* 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
* 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 egg


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 6 cup muffin pan. I use a mini muffin pan

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and margarine with a fork until combined. Measure a rounded tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup, pressing firmly. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 5 minutes, then remove to cool. Keep the oven on.

3. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla until fluffy. Mix in the egg.

4. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the muffin cups, filling each until 3/4 full. I use a big spoon to scoop the cheesecake mixture into the mini muffins Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan before removing. Refrigerate until ready to serve. I put blueberry pie topping on top of the mini-cheesecakes

Enjoy, and happy holidays!

did you bake them in those paper thingies or put them in those paper things after they baked in the tin pans?

I baked them in the paper thingies. If you make sure to make sure that your crust is firm before you bake it the first time, then they won’t fall apart when the eaters take the paper off.
