These cherry cheesecake bites are the perfect dessert for parties or any get together with family and friends. Instead of making one cheesecake and having to slice it into pieces, everyone gets their own individual cheesecake!
It’s also good for those of us who are trying to watch our dessert intake too. You don’t feel so bad when there’s two bites worth of cheesecake!
I used the recipe for my cherry cheesecake for these bites. Recipe makes 28 cheesecake bites.
What you will need for the base:
- 1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 pkgs (250 g each) cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 3 eggs
- 1 can (19 fl oz/540 mL) cherry pie filling
Preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted butter. Pour a tablespoon worth of the crumb mixture into each muffin liner; this is the base.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla on medium speed until well blended. Add in sour cream, then add eggs one at a time mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. With a ladle, pour over cheesecake filling in each muffin cup. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Allow to cool in muffin pan for 3 minutes, remove and transfer to a cooling rack.
Spoon cherry pie filling over each bite. Refrigerate and serve cold. Enjoy!
