Ratings & Reviews

    I will never make a traditional cheesecake again! These mini cheesecakes were delicious and easy. I had to omit the pecans for allergies, I just replaced them with more vanilla wafer crumbs. I had more crumb crust than I needed and the cheesecakes cracked and sunk, but I just covered them with whipped cream. I will make these again!
