Mini Cheesecakes

I made mini cheesecakes yesterday. The recipe is from Williams Sonoma. (It was on the back of my mini cheesecake pan box.) I’m putting the recipe in the comments section if you want it. SO SO GOOD!

    1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
    2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
    2 Tbs. plus 1/3 cup granulated sugar
    12 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup heavy cream

    Preheat an oven to 325°F. Lightly butter the wells of a mini cheesecake pan.
    In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, butter and the 2 Tbs. granulated sugar and stir until blended. Divide the mixture among the prepared wells. Using the bottom of a shot glass or other small glass, press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the wells. Bake the crusts for 10 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool.

    Reduce the oven temperature to 275°F.
    In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, combine the cream cheese and the 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar and beat on low speed until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl often. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. Add the cream and beat until blended. Pour the filling into the crusts, dividing it evenly among the wells.

    Bake until the filling is set, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the pan to the wire rack and let cool to room temperature. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 2 days before serving.

    I’m not sure if you need the W and S pan. (it is good investment though 🙂
    I’m sure you could do the same thing with a mini cupcake or muffin pan just make sure you have liners so the little buggers don’t stick.

    Jordan lets find the perfect Madeline recipe together. I have a lovely pan and I have yet to bake a good batch. And they are my favorite cookie.

    Love Madelines! I even have a batter dispenser that perfectly dispenses batter into the Madeline molds. (I bought it in a moment of weakness when I could envision Paul making me perfectly round and pretty pancakes)

    I have one too, in case you ever need to make a lot of them. So does Rachel Caldwell…

    We should have a mini cheesecake party.
