These are fantastic! Made them for a wedding shower with fresh fruit on top. Hint, when pressing down graham cracker crumbs, I used one of my pestals from my collection of mortar and pestals. Worked great!
I love these for any holday...this year I did some with pecans and cinnomon on top as well as substituting brandy for vanilla for a "manly" cheese cake flavor. Toasted coconut is perfect with almond slice as well. Crushed pinapple and raspberry preserves were on the kids requests, so Ill be adding them to the mix today. I do like to make these on the day of te event.
Making them any sooner I feel they tend to dry out a bit.
Beautiful! Made for party last night and served with choice of toppings. They are creamy and delicious. Used foil cupcake papers. After chilling 2.5 hours (part of time in freezer because in a hurry) foil was removed very easily revealing perfect little cake. Loved the Graham cracker crust. It tastes better than a vanilla wafer to me, and the Graham cracker crumbs look pretty showing on sides like with regular size cake. See picture of my cake with paper removed (cherries on top).
Made these for a bridal shower and they were a big hit. I choose this recipe because I thought the texture of the cheesecake would be creamier with the sweetened condensed milk, and it was. I used graham cracker crumbs for the crust. These baked up perfectly and did not fall apart. Set out various pie fillings for guests to choose their own topping. Got many great compliments on these. Thanks for the recipe.
These turned out perfectly. The crust held together and the consistency of the cheesecake filling was just right. I topped them with homemade blueberry pie filling. They were a big hit for a family brunch dessert. It made a large batch. I think I ended up with almost 32 cheesecakes.
To GF Girl- the cake uses sweetened condensed milk. That adds plenty of sweetness to the cake.
Was going to send in this recipe. Found it this week in Great American Brand Name Baking Cook Book. But looking thru the recipes found it had already been submitted. It is so good and easy to make. Best cheessecake ever and I love the idea of the individual cakes. We used fresh blueberries on some and raspberry jam on the rest. Any preserve or fresh fruit would be tasty. If you want you can make chocolate cheesecake by adding 1 (6-oz) pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips melted, to the batter. Mix well and proceed as stated.
...where's the sugar in this recipe? have any of the other reviewers realized this? i mean there's a bit in the crust, but what about the cake itself? strange.
These were a big hit !! Made them for my husbands birthday. Who needs cake when you can enjoy these little gems!! I topped them with cherry pie filling. Thanks for a great recipe!!! Diana
Great recipe! I had a recipe a few years ago for mini cheesecakes which I lost, but this one is even better! I made these with a few different toppings- raspberries, chocolate and some chopped almonds and dusting sugar. Everyone loved them. I will definitely make again.
