Classic Mini Cheesecake

As you probably know by now I LOVE cheesecake. Today’s recipe is for mini cheesecakes- classic mini cheesecake. In my opinion, classic cheesecake is a simple cheesecake base with a graham cracker crust. Most people like to doll up their cheesecake with pie filling or something crazy in top, but I like mine with simple whipped cream.

I think cheesecake is the ideal dessert for any get together. I mean there are so many options when it comes to cheesecake: red velvet, key lime, Oreo, strawberry, and so many more. Am I the only one who doesn’t like fruit cheesecakes? When I get a cheesecake platter I usually avoid fruity cheesecakes at all cost. My hands gravitate towards chocolate or turtle cheesecake. Anyway on to the cheesecake(s).

  1. This is adorable! I wonder if you could substitute all or part of the CC with greek yogurt. Maybe I’ll test out my own variation of this and link back 😉 ❤
