A perfect dessert serving size!

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
12 individual cheesecakes


⅔ cup whole-wheat graham cracker crumbs, about 4 large crackers (Mi-del is a brand that is 100% whole-wheat or Annie’s makes a partially whole-wheat option)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
8 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup heavy cream
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Recommended toppings: Fresh strawberries, homemade whipped cream, and/or chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tray with paper liners and set aside.
  2. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs and butter thoroughly. Evenly distribute crumbs into the liners (about one heaping tablespoon each) and press down firmly. This is a great job for little fingers:) Bake until the crust is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the filling by using an electric mixer/whisk to mix together the cream cheese, sugar, eggs, heavy cream and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for several minutes until well combined.
  4. Turn the oven down to 300 degrees F and spoon the cream mixture evenly into prepared muffin cups. Bake until set, about 18 to 20 minutes.
  5. Cool on wire racks and chill in a single layer in the fridge. Just before serving fill the top of the muffin cups with whipped cream and other toppings. For the best results, I would not recommend adding the whipped cream in advance.
