Mini Cheesecakes

sm cheesecake headerMini Cheesecakes…these mini cheesecakes are divine. I cannot wait to share this recipe with you today. My mom made these for me as a kid and I love to make them for my family now.

The sour cream topping takes the cake! These are a perfect treat to take to a family dinner party. You can double the recipe for more! You will want to make more! You can also get creative with the toppings for the mini cheesecakes. We love fresh raspberries and strawberries in the summer…and canned cherries in the winter. We’ve even tried drizzling chocolate and caramel over the mini cheesecakes.
