Equipment

  • electric hand-held or stand mixer
  • 6-8 ounce clear glasses, jars or cups

Ingredients

CRUST INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

FILLING INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs and berries for garnish, if desired

Instructions

  • Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and 1 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl. Divide mixture into the bottom of 4-6 glasses, cups or small jars. Use the curved side of the spoon to gently push crumbs down. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat heavy whipping cream with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, and stiff peaks form (around 1 minute). Set bowl of whipping cream aside.
  • In another large mixing bowl, beat softened cream cheese together with the 4 tablespoons sugar and vanilla. Whisk or beat until mixture is smooth and has no lumps.
  • With a large spoon gently fold whipping cream into cream cheese mixture, being careful not to deflate whipped cream.
  • Transfer cream cheese mixture to a large gallon size ziplock bag, gently squeeze the air out of the bag and seal. Snip the corner of the bag making a hole about as wide as your thumb, and “pipe” the filling on top of the graham cracker crust, into the cups. (can use a piping instead, if you have one)
  • Once cups are filled, chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours, preferably.
  • Before serving, garnish with whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs and berries. Enjoy!

Notes

Storage recommendation: Cheesecake cups will keep, covered and refrigerated, for about 3 days. I typically make my mini cheesecakes the evening before I plan to serve it. I've found the easiest way to store the cups is on a large baking sheet and then I can cover all of the cups with one large strip of plastic wrap.
