These mini cheesecakes are perfect for parties where there are multiple dessert options. I love cheesecake but it is just so filling I rarely finish it. Many times I just decide to not even eat the cheesecake because I just know I won’t finish it. I found this recipe because I was looking for a way to enjoy cheesecakes. The only thing that I would improve next time is I would make sure to allow the cream cheese to soften extra because mine came out a bit lumpy. I found this recipe on the web site Chef Savvy the link is I copied and pasted the recipe below and put any comments I had in italics and in parentheses.
