Mini No-Bake Cheesecakes

I am a HUGE fan of cheesecake. I was craving it one night and started looking up no-bake recipes. I had all the ingredients I needed to make a no-bake cheesecake, but not the crust part. I went out and bought the little mini-crusts from the supermarket instead.

I have included the instructions on how to make a graham cracker crust for a large cake, however you can portion it into smaller cakes if desired.

Mini No-Bake Cheesecakes

Servings: 8 servings (or 1 9-inch Cake)

Total Time: 6 Hours

Ingredients:

2 Packages (20 sheets) Graham Crackers

11 Tbsp Butter (melted, 1 3/8 sticks, unsalted)

2 Tbsp Sugar

2 Boxes Cream Cheese (8-ounce packages, room temperature)

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14-ounce can)

1/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Persimmons Sauce

Directions:

Put graham crackers in a large resealable plastic bag, and crush them with a rolling pin until very fine crumbs form

Pour crumbs into a medium bowl; stir in sugar. Add butter, and stir until well combined.

Press the crumb mixture into a 9-inch spring form pan, spreading it 1 1/2 to 2 inches up the side; press flat. Chill crust in freezer at least 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the filling: Using an electric mixer set at medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the condensed milk a little at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Beat in the lemon juice and vanilla.

Pour the filling into the crust; smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 hours.

Take the Persimmons Sauce and top it off.

Unclasp sides of pan, and remove cheesecake.
