How to Make Mini Cheesecakes with Sour Cream Topping


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease a 6 cup muffin pan. I also cut small circles of parchment paper to line the bottom of the makes the cakes easier to remove once completed.

  3. 3.In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, milk, vanilla and flour until light and fluffy. Mix in egg. Pour mixture into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. 4.In small bowl, mix sour cream with remaining sugar and vanilla. Top each cake with a small dollop and return to oven for an additional 10 minutes.
  5. 5.Allow to cool completely before removing from pan. Refrigerate. Top with fresh fruit and/or chocolate to add more color and flavor! Enjoy!
