Mini Cheesecakes

If you need a fun, party dessert, these mini cheesecakes are delicious.  The recipe comes from The Texas Experience.   It seems like we all love portion control & these are a real crowd pleaser!!

Pull of the strawberry stem, notch the top & you have a heart!
3 (8 ounce each) pkgs. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1/2 t. vanilla
5 eggs
Vanilla wafers

Line muffins tins with cupcake liners & add a vanilla wafer to the bottom of each.

Bring cream cheese to room temperature.  Blend with sugar until fluffy.  Add vanilla & eggs.   Fill 3/4 full (I like to use my ice cream scoop for this).  Bake for 40 minutes at 300 degrees.  Remove from oven, cool 10 minutes.


1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 t. vanilla

Beat all ingredients.  Cover cheesecakes with topping, return to oven for 5 minutes.  Chill.


Leave off the topping & substitute 1 can pie filling (cherry, blueberry, etc.)  Cool the cheesecakes & then spoon on the filling.

You also can add a  bit of whipped cream on top of the cooled cheesecakes  & add a fresh strawberry.

Makes 25 mini cheesecakes.

These freeze beautifully, which makes it even greater for party planning!!!

  20. Hi Kitty,
    Oh, yummy! This is a lot like my recipe but I don't put the sour cream topping on. I just use pie filling. Your sour cream topping sounds really nice. Your little cheesecakes look gorgeous in their valentine papers! Thank you so much for sharing this with us today and Happy Valentines Day.


  21. Oh heavens those look so good, and they are so pretty! Happy Valentine's Day!

  22. Just a note to let you know I tried this recipe and did I short blog about it!

  23. Those look really yummy, and I know the bite size is appreciated by your guests. My Mom and I make mini desserts or cut them into bite sizes for guests at Christmas so people can have a sample of each dessert. I was going to say without overindulging, but they already eat too much during the Christmas meal.

    How cute that you've even decorated your cheesecakes with a heart. Thanks for sharing the recipe at the Your Cozy Home Party!

  24. Super cute! I love cheesecake and all things bite-sized!

  25. Thanks for linking up @CountryMommaCooks…These look really good....Have a wonderful Sunday:)
