tweak to mini cheesecakes!

ORIGINAL RECIPE.....


mini cheesecake recipe


Ingredients:



  • 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

  • 1 tbs margarine, melted

  • 1/4 cup & 1 tbp white sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese (softened)

  • 1 1/2 tps lemon juice

  • 1/4 tps vanilla extract

  • 1 egg


Directions:



  • Preheat oven to 325 and grease a 6 cup muffin pan

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, tbs of sugar,and margarine with a fork until combined.

  • Measure a rounded tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup, pressing firmly.

  • Bake in pre-heated oven for 5 mins, then remove to cool but keep the oven on.

  • Beat together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, lemon juice, adn vanilla until fluffy.

  • Add egg.

  • Pour the cream cheese mixture into the muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

  • Bake at 325 for 25 mins.

  • Cool completely in pan before removing. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Of course you can add any fruit/chocolate topping you'd like.


EDIT



  • The first time I made it the crust part was too dry, and was almost crumbling off of the cake. So this time I added a little extra butter to the crust mixture. Not much, maybe a teaspoon. But the crust turned out MUCH better.

  • I also experimented with getting them out of the muffin trays without crumbling them. The solution I found: after they are completely cool, run a knife between the edge of the cake and the pan-just slide the knife in and go all the way around, to make sure the sides aren't sticking to the pan. then, with a butter-knife in each hand, stick the knives down about 1/3 the way down into opposite 'sides' of the cake and gently pull up. (forks work too, but leave more marks on the side of the cakes)


I hope this will help if any of you plan to try these = ) I wanted to take a pic to show, but I can't find my camera battery charger = (

I don't like oreos = ( I know-I'm weird! LOL DH does though so maybe I'll make some for him one day. I also really am not into chocolate cheesecake as in, where there is chocolate mixed into the cake. but I can eat cheesecake that has chocolate syrup. gosh, I'm realizing I'm a pretty picky eater = (
