Red, White, & Blueberry...

Browsing for kitchen gadgets one day at amazon.com and came across this mini cheesecake pan. Crazy for anything "mini", I immediately ordered one.... and then it sat.... for over a year...untouched... in my pantry.

Decided to make a cheesecake for a family gathering the other day, and while reaching for my springform pan, I found my mini cheesecake pan. I had forgotten that I had it.

I've been on a mini cheesecake baking binge ever since.....


Super Easy Mini Cheesecake Recipe
(a combination of different recipes found online)
1 C. graham cracker crumbs
2 T. brown sugar
1/3 stick melted

Combine well - fill the twelve cups of the mini pan with 1 1/2 tablespoons of crumb mixture, press bottoms and come halfway up the sides

1 eight oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1/4 C. sugar
1 t. lemon juice
1 t. grated lemon zest

Using an electric mixer, blend softened cream cheese, egg, vanilla, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest together in a medium bowl. Spoon cream cheese mixture evenly into the twelve cups of the pan (only 1/2 full).

Bake 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and place on rack to let cool for 15 minutes. Use sharp knife to loosen sides. Remove cheesecakes from pan and cool completely.

Top with favorite toppings (I used cherry and blueberry pie filling). Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Bon Apetit!
