These mini cheesecakes have a smooth, creamy filling that sits in a buttery graham cracker crust. Each cheesecake is topped with fresh whipped cream and berries for a classic little treat! Their mini size makes them perfect for transporting and sharing!
- 1 cup (134g) graham cracker crumbs (or vanilla wafer cookie crumbs)
- 2 tbsp (26g) sugar
- 4 tbsp (56g) unsalted butter, melted
- 12 ounces (339g) cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/2 cup (104g) sugar
- 2 tbsp (16g) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (115g) sour cream
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1/2 cup (120ml) heavy whipping cream, cold
- 5 tbsp (36g) powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Fresh fruit
- Preheat oven to 325°F (162°C). Add cupcake liners to a cupcake pan. Spray liners with non-stick spray, if desired.
- Combine the vanilla wafer cookies crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Divide the mixture between the cupcake liners (about 2 tablespoons per cup) and press into the bottoms.
- Bake the crusts for 5 minutes then remove from oven. Allow to cool while you make the filling.
- To make the filling, reduce oven to 300°F (148°C). In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, sugar, and flour until combined (Use low speed to keep less air from getting into the batter, which can cause cracks). Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- Add the sour cream and vanilla extract. Beat on low speed until well combined.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating slowly and scraping the sides of the bowl after each addition.
- Divide the filling between the cheesecake cups until the cups are mostly full.
- Bake the cheesecakes for 15 minutes, then turn off the oven and leave the door closed for another 10 minutes.
- Crack the oven door and allow cheesecakes to cool for 15-20 minutes, then put in the fridge to finish cooling.
- When cheesecakes are cooled, remove them from the pan.
- To make the whipped cream, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to a large mixer bowl fitted with the whisk attachment. Whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.
- Pipe the whipped cream onto the tops of the cheesecakes and top with fresh fruit.
- Refrigerate in an air-tight container until ready to serve. Best if eaten with 4-5 days.
