I know when I think of cheesecake I can feel intimidated! But these Mini Cheesecakes are oh so easy and yummy! It’s just a few simple ingredients, a little bit of baking and refrigeration time and before you know it you have a cute little dessert to bring to any function!
I made these up for our 4th of July party we went to… I found some cute USA flags on toothpicks to top them off… but really you can top them with any fresh fruit you have on hand or not top them at all!
I found the simple recipe at Taste of Home and put my own spin on them! Check it out… and make your own!!!

One more note as you read through this… I was making a double batch when putting these together … so stick to the recipe (not what you see in the pictures) like the 2 eggs in the bowl 😉
I forgot to take pictures of the next step… So here is a quick run down…
Once refrigerated pull out and remove the paper lining… top with your fruit!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

I have been making these for years. They are wonderful and every one likes them. I just top mine with cherry pie filling.
Looks wonderful! Just wondering if these are “regular” muffin tins, or the “mini” variety? And the size of the paper cupcake liners? I have medium, large and jumbo, but don’t have any that fit my “mini” tart pans. thanks
Hi Kathy… They are mini muffin liners… about 1 1/4 inch across the bottom and 1 inch in height! The liner were smaller than my pan but they help hold them in place while baking! I hope that helps!
I make something very similar but don’t bother with the graham crackers. I use vanilla wafers in the bottom and typically use tart cherry pie filling on the top after baking.
