Mini Cheesecakes

Monday, October 12, 2009

As we all know, Thanksgiving is around the corner. This year, my mother and I have split the holidays - she gets Thanksgiving and I'm in charge of Christmas. This will be the first major holiday that I'm doing so I'm a little nervous. I thought the smart thing to do is to try things out before the holidays and I picked dessert first.  I've always wanted to try to make mini cheesecakes and thought that this was the perfect opportunity.

Mini Cheesecakes
2 packages Keebler Ready Crust Mini Graham Cracker Pie Crust
2 packages (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 c. sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tbsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. sour cream

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese on medium speed, until fluffy.  Add sugar, cornstarch and vanilla; beat until combined.  Add eggs one at a time until mixed thoroughly. Stir in sour cream.

Place mini pie crusts on a cookie sheet.  Pour mixture into each crust.  Bake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on wire rack for 15 minutes and then place in fridge. Chill for at least 3 hours and serve.
