Cheesecake Tarts


I am always trying to figure out new ways to add to my list of recipes and now that I manage a café I am constantly taking recipes I normally would make into something large and decadent into a more petite sized treat. These Cheesecake Tarts were perfect for the café. I took a simple cheesecake recipe and miniaturized it.

I used a cherry pie filling and a mixed berry pie filling to top my cheesecake tarts but you can use what ever is your favorite filling.

Ingredients: (makes 12)

1 1/2 Cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 Cup sugar

1/4 Cup unsalted butter, melted

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 Cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Your favorite pie filling

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray cupcake pan with cooking spray.

First we will make the tart crust. In a small bowl combing graham cracker, sugar, and melted butter until moist.

Fill each cupcake cup with crumbs. Using your fingers press into a cup shape.

Bake at 375 for 5 minutes. Remove and prepare cheesecake filling. To help form the cup use a Tablespoon to press when it comes out of the oven.

Set oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl blend cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth.

Fill each tart cup.

Bake for 15 minutes until cheesecake sets.

Allow to cool completely before topping with filling.

Refrigerate and enjoy!


About kristinegough86

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
