Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

Guess who requested cheesecake this week....... Yup my brother did!! These cheesecakes are super easy and fast to make. If you are having a small dinner party it is a great dessert that you can make early and store them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them. Everyone can have their own mini cheesecake and not feel guilty after eating it.


  • One Pack of 6 Mini Ready Crust (Graham Cracker)
  • 1- 8oz Package of Cream cheese, Soften
  • 1/4 cup of Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons of Fresh Lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Lemon zest
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg
  • Fresh Strawberries

Preheat oven 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl add cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract and egg.

Mix together until all ingredients are well combined.

Pour the cream cheese mixture into the mini crust. Place the cheesecakes in the oven for about 25 minutes.

While the cheesecakes are in the oven cut the strawberries into slices and add some sugar.

Remove cheesecakes from the oven and them cool completely .

Once the cheesecakes have cooled completely top them with the strawberry mixture and serve.
