If one isn’t enough don’t worry, there will be eleven more! Be careful though as they will be gone before you know it, and you don’t want it all to be blamed on you!
1 cup graham crackers crumbs
3 tablespoons butter (soft)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup cream cheese
¼ cup caster sugar (super-fine sugar)*
1 large egg,
¼ cup heavy cream
4 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
fresh blueberries, for garnish
12 count mini cheesecake pan
*If you can't find caster or super-fine sugar, you can make your own substitute using regular granulated sugar in a blender/food processor/coffee bean grinder
Preheat oven to 335F
Dip a paper towel into soft stick of butter and lightly grease your cheesecake pan holes
Put graham cracker crumbs into a food processor and pulse to fine. Add melted butter and granulated sugar, process a few seconds until well combined.
Spoon about 1 ½ tablespoons of graham cracker mixture into each greased hole of the cheesecake pan. Use the back of a spoon, or your finger tip to press lightly and level the surface. Set aside. If you have extra, divide the remaining evenly and repeat process.
Use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add egg and mix well, next add heavy cream, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined and smooth. Spoon the cream cheese mixture over each graham cracker base. Bake in preheated oven, for about 20 minutes.
Remove the cheesecake pan from the oven. Let it cool on a wire rack. Carefully remove the cheesecakes and take disc off of the bottom of the cheesecakes using a butter knife, if your pan comes with individual discs. Store in an air-tight container and chill in fridge until completely set. Or you can cover on a plate with plastic wrap.
