    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    My oldest son bought me a set of 4.5-inch springform cheesecake pans and I found this recipe with stir-in variations by Googling. Found on Diana's Desserts website at Source: Kraft Foods, November 24, 2003. See Directions below recipe for ideas for garnishing, or stir-in variations! Please note that the nutritional information does NOT include stir-in ingredients!

      I love this recipe! I made the full amount of the base recipe. Divided that into quarter amounts and then added a different flavor to each. I made: Chocolate Chunk Mini Cheesecake, Peanut Butter Mini Cheesecake, Citrus Mini Cheesecake and Mocha Mini Cheesecake. I only sampled the Citrus one and put the other 3 in the freezer to be enjoyed later. The recipe makes very nice cheesecake, it's smooth and creamy. I'm very happy that I tried this. :D
