Marvelous Mini Cheesecakes

June 12, 2009

~ Emma ~

I graduated from the fifth grade last Thursday.  School’s out for the whole summer and I hope to get a lot of cooking time in. I’m hoping to make a German Chocolate Cake for Papa (Patty can help), Cream Puffs with Katy and a Black Forest Cake with Mary.

I found this recipe in a real cool recipe book with the BEST recipes. It’s called “The Treasures of Christmas”  but I’m using summer ingredients to dress them up.  You may be surprised to hear that I made these all by myself – mom (Wanda) just showed me two little tips.

Crushing Graham Crackers

I took the pictures too – except for the ones of myself – silly!

Marvelous Mini Cheesecakes

.

1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs

1/4 c sugar

1/4 c butter , melted

3 (8oz) packages cream cheese, softened

1 (14 oz) can Sweetened Condensed Milk

3 eggs

2 tsps vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degree. Combine crumbs, sugar and margarine; press equal portions onto bottoms of 24 lightly greased muffin cups.
.
In large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.  Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
.
Spoon equal amounts of mixture into prepared cups.  Bake 20 min or until cakes spring back when lightly touched.  Cool. Chill. Garnish as desired.
.

*place in freezer for 15 min they will come out of the tins easier.

.

I used fresh fruits, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.

    They look so delicious and sound so easy to make, don’t know why I haven’t done it before. My daughter will have a ball helping me. She likes to pretend she’s a chef.
    Did you put them in cupcake paper cases????
