Easy Mini Cheesecakes

Posted by Hello

We made these with my friends to sell at the basketball tournament concession stand in order to raise funds for our class trip. Everybody liked them.


1 c finely ground vanilla wafer cookie crumbs
3 tbs melted butter


1/4 c sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp lemon rind
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice


Different fruit jams or lightly sweetened sour cream

Heat oven to 325F. Line muffin pans with liners. Mix melted butter with crushed wafer crumbs and stir well. Put about one tsp of mixture into each liner and press to form the crust of cheesecakes. In large bowl, mix sugar, cream cheese, egg, vanilla, lemon rind and juice. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Pour over crusts, filling cup 3/4 full. Bake 20-25 minutes or until set. Fill the dipped centers with jam or sour cream to decorate. (Makes about 8 mini cheesecakes.)
