How long can these cheesecakes be kept out without refrigerating? Seen use for bake sales so is that safe with the cream cheese ingredient?

My question, has anyone stirred the jams into the top layer before baking? I have an awesome tomato jam (clear) I want to try...Another place to use my garden products..

Recipe was just enough for my mini cheesecake pan. I didn’t use paper cups. If using a muffin pan, you will need to double the recipe. Easy recipe.

These are super easy and a big hit with my family. I took the advice of one reviewer and doubled the cream cheese filling and I ended up making 14 cheesecakes. I left off the jam and let everyone put whatever topping they wanted on theirs but most people didn't top them at all. They're good without the topping.

Taste was good but had to adjust ingredients for cheesecake filling. Here is what I did for 24 muffin size mini cheesecakes. I made lemon cheesecakes so fresh fruit would be the topper.2 cups graham crumbs6 tbsp butter, melted3 - 8oz cream cheese1 cup sugarzest of 1 lemon2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice3 eggs

This is my new go-to dessert for gatherings. Made them for work. We had a baked goods auction/fundraiser and these were sold quickly.I had originally planned to alter the recipe using almond flour instead of graham crackers and do a low carb crust for the Atkins and diabetic crowd. I read the labels and did the math and found that the carb total was still very friendly so I made them like normal.I went to the cake supply store and got some fillings to put on top. I used lemon curd and key lime. They taste as good as homemade, honestly, so why work harder than I needed to? Besides, jam is so overly sweet.Everyone that bought a box of them told me how much they had enjoyed them.I am making them again tomorrow for the Cinco De Mayo food bash. We do potlucks at the drop of a hat, or sombrero in this case. I plan to top 4 dozen with key lime, lemon curd, raspberry, and dulce de leche. They will be a hit.*** I do double or 1.5 times the filling amount. IMO, the photo shows a lot of crust and very little filling so I doubled it. Came out like I anticipated. The filling to crust ratio is spot on if you 1.5 or 2x it. I prefer more filling than the photos show so that was my only adjustment. I'll try to remember to take photos tomorrow.The recipe is SUPER easy. You really can't get much easier. For the crust, I scoop the crumb mix in and tamp it down. Works beautifully! I use a small cookies scoop to fill my cupcake liners with the filling. My bottoms came out a little over brown last time so I plan to double up my pan this time. That should fix that issue. Even with slightly browned bottoms I still got raves. That is how yummy these are.If you like cheesecake, plain or with topping, you will not be sorry you made these. Super easy...Super tasty...Solid recipe.
