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

How to Make PARTY TIME MINI CHEESECAKES 4 A CROWD

Step-by-Step

  1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES F. Line muffin tins first with the paper liners. Add a vanilla wafer to each paper liner. I turned the wafers upside down in the liners to make them fit better.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add the softened cream cheese, eggs, sugar and the Princess Emulsion or extract. Beat well until mixture is creamy and smooth.
  3. Using a teaspoon add enough batter to each cup till almost filled. Then place pan in preheated 350 degree F. oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Then remove from oven, muffins will fall in center. Allow to cool completely about 3 hours.
  4. Using a small teaspoon add enough filling to top each muffin with fresh or canned fruit pie filling or custard topping of our choice. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!
  5. 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.
