I found this great recipe for mini cheesecakes that are made in the crockpot and I had to share. They were so easy to make. They were adorable. They were delicious. Happy Cooking!
Mini Cheesecakes in a Jar
Makes approximately 10, 4 oz mini cheesecakes
Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter into a bowl until mixed and crumbly. Put one tablespoon into each jar and compact it down. I usually use a small glass cup to compact them.
- 1 1/2 cup ground graham crackers
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 stick (8 tbsp) melted butter
Beat sugar and cream cheese together, until pale. Add eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Beat in cream, extract and lemon zest and beat until filling is smooth. Pour into jars. Place jars into crock pot and carefully (avoid splashing water into the cheesecakes) pour hot water until jars are 3/4 submerged. Cook on high for 1 1/2 hours. Because all crock pots are different, check your cheesecakes after an hour. Test the middle by touching it with your finger, if it solid then it’s done. Remove from crock pot and refrigerate for 2 hours. Garnish with fresh fruit and enjoy!
I found the recipe on Pinterest. The original recipe is from theseasidebaker.com.
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
