Mini Blueberry Cheesecake

Cheesecake is the most popular dessert in my family.  When we have cravings,  these individual mini cheesecakes are all we need to feel satisfied. Topped with fruit jam, they look elegant, and taste fabulous.


I always use my 6 cup muffin pan to prepare these mini cheesecakes.  With one pack of 250g cream cheese, they are just the right portion sizes for my family. 

Use crushed Oreo biscuits and butter as the base.
 Top with cream cheese mixture. 
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 160°C.
 Cool and refrigerate for a few hours. 
When ready to serve, top with fruit jam. 

It's quick and easy. Bon appétit !

  3. What an easy and cute idea! I love the mini/individual size for portion control, plus it makes it easy for each person to have the topping they want. Thank you for sharing.
