Mini Cheesecakes

Pictured: mini cheesecake with Oreo crust and fresh-picked strawberries.

Original recipe from a friend.

These are the perfect cold snack on a hot day, made fresh with berries from the garden.  Yum, yum, yum!

  • 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 2 c (1 pint) whipping cream
  • one cookie crust, unbaked, or 12 whole cookies (Oreos, vanilla wafers, gingersnaps, etc)
  1. Bake cookie crust according to directions in muffin tins, place in freezer.  Alternatively, place one cookie in the bottom of each tin.
  2. Blend powdered sugar and cream cheese. Whip whipping cream, then blend with cream cheese mixture. Remove cupcake tins from freezer and fill with mixture. Cover and freeze.
  3. Thaw in fridge 1 hour before serving, or serve frozen. Top with pie filling, fresh fruit, broken berries, ice cream topping, etc.
*Muffin liners can be used, but aren't necessary. Slide a butter knife up and down around the edges to work the cheesecakes loose.
