Mini Cheesecakes (No Bake)

A"no bake" cheesecake means that the cake is not baked or cooked in oven.This cake contains no eggs or flour but still has the rich and tangy flavors of cheesecake and is smooth and creamy.This cake can be stored in  refrigerator for several days.There are many who don't like cheesecakes but this mini cheesecakes makes a perfect serving for any parties and would definitely gain you accolades.I was a bit nervous about the outcome as the original recipe was to prepare in a 8-9" tart pan with removable bottom.But I went ahead and tried to make it smaller servings in muffin liners and that's why,I couldn't click any step by step pictures.Surprise! Surprise !!they came out really good and could be easily removed from the paper liners.Do give these mini cheesecakes a try and Enjoy !!


Ingredients
for the crust
graham crackers /digestive biscuits 1 1/2 cup+ a little more (powdered/crushed)
butter 85 gm(6tbsp)
granulated sugar 2 tbsp

for cheese filling
cream cheese 8 oz
heavy cream 1 cup
vanilla extract 1 tsp
granulated sugar 1/4 cup

for topping
strawberry syrup/sauce with berries or cherry pie filling



Method
To make crust
Line a muffin tray with paper liners.Powder /crush the graham crackers /digestive biscuits.Add the sugar and melted butter to the crumbs and mix well.Scoop two teaspoon of mix in the paper liners and press unto the paper liners on the bottom and sides of the liner.Repaet the same step for all 12 liners.Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate to chill until you make the filling.
To make cheesecake filling
In a clean bowl,beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy.add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add in the vanilla extract.In another clean bowl,beat the whipping cream until soft peaks.Fold in the cream cheese and whipped cream.Pour in the filling over the prepared crust.Smooth the top.Cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.Add in the strawberry syrup with cherries topping or cream cheese pie filling or a fruit topping of your choice.
Refrigerate again overnight until set.



Servings~ 12 mini cheesecakes


NOTES 
* I have used marie biscuits in this recipe.
* Adding sugar to the crust is optional as biscuits already have sugar in them.
* Overnight refrigeration is an important step or else the crust may not come out properly.
* You can try the same recipe in a tart pan(8-9") with removable bottom.
* Be very gentle to remove the paper liners or else the crust will break.And serve with in 10 minutes after removed from refrigerator otherwise the butter will melt as its a no bake cheese cake.
* Store unused ones in refrigerator for several days.
* If you wish to bake the crust,then bake the crust @ 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.Cool down the crust and fill the cream cheese filling.

Fabulous cheesecake. I don't know why but I'm can never get my 'no-bake' cheesecake right. It's either too soft or too gelatine-ly.
