How to make mini cheesecakes

These little desserts are super easy to make and take less baking time than a regular cheesecake.

First prepare the crust. Place the cookies in the bowl of a food processor and puree until crumbs form. If you don’t have a processor, place the cookies in a ziplock bag and press with a rolling pin until crumbs form.

Add melted butter over the cookie crumbs and mix until evenly moistened. Divide the mixture evenly into the bottom of 12 muffin cases and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. Bake for 5 minutes and let cool slightly before adding the cream cheese filling.

For the cream cheese filling, mix the cream cheese well with the sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Add the eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated, and mix in the sour cream. This only takes a few minutes as it is important not to over mix the mixture and to incorporate as little air as possible. Otherwise, the cheesecakes could burst in the oven.

Spread the cream cheese filling on the baked crust and bake the mini cheesecakes on a low temperature for 18-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely at room temperature.

Always chill the mini cheesecakes for at least 4-6 hours or even better overnight before serving.
