Mini Raspberry Cheesecakes


For the Crust:

1 (4.25oz.) box of Blue Diamond Honey Cinnamon Nut-Thins
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

For the Filling:

3 (8oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. almond extract
3 eggs
20 fresh raspberries
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam or preserves


Must chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray 4 mini springform pans (4″ size available from Wilton) with nonstick cooking spray (I like Vegalene.) and set aside.

In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the nut thins, butter, sugar and cinnamon into very fine crumbs. Divided equally between the four springform pans. Using a piece of plastic wrap, press the crumbs down firmly on the bottom and half way up the sides of the pans. Set aside.

In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, add the cream cheese, sugar and almond extract. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Divide equally between the four pans.

Use one tablespoon of preserves per pan and swirl in the cream cheese mixture. Press 5 fresh raspberries into each one of the mini cheesecakes.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the centers just barely jiggle when tapped. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes. Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 to 2 hours. Pop out of springform pan and serve topped with whipped cream if desired.

Makes 8 servings

Note: You can also place these in a muffin tin. Divide the ingredients by 12 instead of 4 when assembling and bake for 20 minutes. Use cupcake papers if desired instead of using non-stick cooking spray. It will be easier to pop them out of the muffin tin with the papers when done.


Have fun with other berry flavors if you want. Blueberry or strawberry would be just as tasty.
