Couldn't be easier! My 11-y.o. and his birthday guests polished these right off. I made them in mini muffin tins.
Made these for a high tea our church puts on. Used a mini cupcake pan (24 per pan). Put a heaping teaspoon of graham crumbs in each, pressed it down and put the cream cheese mixture almost to the top of each cup. Baked for 9 minutes. Made 200 of them and they were a hit!
This one is a keeper. I've made this recipe several times, exactly as it is written and I get rave reviews every time.
These delicious little cheesecakes seem to go faster than when I make a regular size cheesecake. Maybe it's my imagination but I 've seen my guys hit the fridge for one of these as opposed to pulling out a whole pie and cutting a slice. Never had any to go to waste!!!
Yummy. And I like the smaller size for easier serving at pot lucks and events.
