    These little cheesecakes were really easy to make and tasted great. I did make some adjustments because one of the people I was making them for cannot have anything with gluten in it. I used a gluten-free flour and used gluten-free cookies for the base and they tasted great. I also doubled the recipe for the sour cream topping to have enough for all of the cakes. Overall, a great recipe that everyone loved.
