"These are delicious and dangerously easy. If you like cheesecake but don't want to be in the long haul for a full 9-10" cheesecake these are your next best bet. They're fantastic with or without the fresh fruit on top. I also love the ease in doubling this recipe. In fact, I tripled it with no problems and made it in a 15x11 baking pan."
