I made 192 units of mini cheesecakes from this recipe for a reunion. They were a big hit, I used Strawberry, Cherry & Blueberry pie filling. They bake rather quickly, so they are quick & easy. If you want a smaller recipe I have one posted for Gingerbread Amaretto Mini Cheesecakes. These little dessert gems are great if you want something sweet but not too much. They make a beautiful presentation. I used 48 unit mini muffin pans to bake these in to hasten the baking process. My husband made the dessert stand for me for the event. I love the separate 3 piece units for displaying the desserts

    NOTE: Princess cake & cookie Bakery Emulsion adds a creamy and rich bouquet flavor to cookies and cakes, and the flavor does not bake away as with alcohol based products. It is used measure for measure in baked goods, and slightly less in foods that are not baked like frostings. I ordered mine from Amazon. I love it.
