Mini Lemon Cheesecake

One of the reasons I love miniature cheesecakes is because everyone can grab their dessert when they want it and I don’t need to cut and serve. They are perfectly portioned and ready to go! These lemon cheesecakes are one of my most favorites.

Here Is What You’ll Need:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Lemon
  • Vanilla
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • Salt
  • Eggs

Mini Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

  1. Make cookie layer. Mix your ingredients and fill your cupcake liners with about a tablespoon of cookie crust. Press firmly.
  2. Add cheesecake layer. Make your lemon cheesecake filling and scoop 1/4 of a cup of that over the cookie crust. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  3. Topping. Add whipped cream to the cooled cheesecake along with a wedge of lemon and a bit of lemon zest. Enjoy!

What Decorative Topping for Mini Lemon Cheesecakes?

The best thing you can use to top these off is fresh lemon. We use the zest from a lemon to sprinkle over the whipped cream, and a wedge of lemon off to the side.

Sometimes, we’ve seen people cut a cute paper straw into thirds and poke it through the top to look like a drink of lemonade, too. It’s a really cute idea!
