These little pieces of heaven are very easy to make and are sure to please any cheesecake lover!

  • Ingredients:

    1 cup Kinnikinnick S'morables gluten free graham crackers
    1 tablespoon sugar
    4 tablespoons butter, melted

    2 - 8 ounce packages full-fat cream cheese, room temperature
    2/3 cup sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 large eggs, room temperature
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup sour cream

  • Instructions:

    Preheat the oven to 300F and place oven rack in the center of the oven.

    For the Crust

    1) In a food processor, crush the graham crackers until they are coarse to fine crumbs.

    2) In a small bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. 

    3) Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and press a heaping tablespoon of crumbs into the bottom of each cup. Cover and refrigerate while making filling.

    For the Filling

    1) In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on low speed until smooth and creamy. Add the sugar and salt and mix until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.

    2) Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until well-mixed. Add the vanilla and sour cream and beat until combined. 

    3) Remove the crusts from the refrigerator and evenly divide the filling among the 12 muffin cups, approximately 1/4 cup each. 

    4) Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the cheesecakes are firm, but the centers are still a little wobbly. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. 

    5) Let the cheesecakes cool and then refrigerate for a few hours. Serve plain or with fresh raspberries or blueberries, or your favorite fruit or chocolate sauce. Enjoy!
