My baby shower had these mini cheesecakes and they’re just so dang cute because of the petite size. I gravitate towards making smaller desserts when serving a larger crowd because it allows people to still be social while eating.

This recipe uses vanilla wafers for the crust and the cheesecakes are baked in muffin tins. The vanilla wafer crust adds a nice crunch to the recipe without being overpowering. So you can really add whatever fruit flavors you want as toppings. I used whipped cream with blueberry & lemon, but get creative and think about what’s in season.

Mini Cheesecakes Topping Ideas:

  • Fresh Strawberries With Strawberry Glaze
  • Mixed Fruit: Blueberry, Kiwi, Strawberry and Clementine Slice
  • Single Cherry (With Stem For Presentation)
  • Raspberry & Mint Leaf
