- 3/4 Cup Crushed Graham Crackers
- 3 tbsp Melted Butter
- 1 tbsp Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 8oz Bricks of Cream Cheese Room Temperature
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix graham crackers, melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar in a food processor.
- Press 1 1/2 tbsp crust mixture into the bottom of 12 silicone baking cups and set aside on a baking sheet.
- In a stand mixer, mix all the filling ingredients, except the eggs.
- When the cream cheese mixture is blending, slowly beat in the eggs. It will look like a cake batter.
- Add the filling mixture to the crust-lined, baking cups. Fill to 3/4 full.
- Gently lift and tap baking sheet holding the cheesecakes on the counter to release any air bubbles.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the center is almost set.
- Turn off oven heat and leave in the oven with the door partway open for 5 minutes. Then allow to cool completly before serving.
- Serve plain… or top with your favorite fresh fruit, pie filling, jams, or crushed candy bar.
If you want a chocolate crust you can use chocolate graham crackers, or crushed Oreos. We make these in our air fryer toaster oven and it works great.
