Mini Cheesecake Recipe (Graham Cracker Crust)

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yields 12 mini cheesecakes


-2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
-2 tbsp white sugar
-2 tbsp margarine, melted
-2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
-1/2 cup white sugar
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-1 tsp grated lemon zest
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-2 eggs


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper muffin cups.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and margarine with a fork until combined. Measure a rounded tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup, pressing firmly. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, then remove to cool. Keep the oven on.

3. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla until fluffy. Mix in the egg.

4. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the muffin cups, filling each until 3/4 full. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool completely in pan before removing. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Add pie filling or other toppings as desired. Enjoy!
This is one of the best mini cheesecake recipes I've found with graham cracker crust. I got it from allrecipes.com. I like it best with strawberry topping. Let me know what you think :)
