Here’s a little sweet treat you can make your Valentine ahead of time. I didn’t make my own whipped cream this time, but it’s really easy to do if you chose too. You don’t want to make these bigger then a cupcake size they are rich and thick and 1 is all you need.
Philadelphia Mini Cheesecakes
(Adapted from Kraft)
1 cup honey maid graham cracker cookies
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3 packages (8 ounces each) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whipping cream
2 cups blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix graham crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar, and butter; press into bottoms of 18 paper-lined muffin pan cups.
Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
Pour over crusts.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until centers are almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Beat whipping cream with mixer on high speed until soft peaks form; spread onto cheesecakes. Top with blueberries and zest.
