How to Make MINI BERRY GOAT CHEESE CAKES

Step-by-Step

  2. Insert 12 liners in a standard-size square or round muffin pan. Press 2 Tbsp. of the ground gingersnaps firmly into each liner.
  3. Beat goat cheese and cream cheese with a hand mixer on low until smooth. Add 2/3 cup of the sugar and the salt; beat until combined. Incorporate eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Beat on high until smooth, about 2 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, combine blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, remaining 1 Tbsp. sugar and 1 Tbsp. WATER in a pot. Cook over medium heat until berries burst, about 5 minutes. Cool. Refrigerate until using.
  6. Remove cakes from pan and peel off liners. Spoon berries on top of each cake and garnish with mint leaves if desired.
