Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Cheesecake Filling

  • 32 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Topping

  • 8 ounces raspberry jam

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Crust

  • Line two standard-sized muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  • In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar, and cinnamon.
  • Pour 1 tablespoon of graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner. Using a cup, press crumbs into an even packed layer.
  • Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest while you make the filling.

Cheesecake Filling

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip cream cheese until fluffy. (You can use a hand mixer instead if you prefer.)
  • Add in sugar slowly to the cream cheese and keep mixing until smooth.
  • Add in eggs, one at a time. Then add vanilla and salt; mix to combine.
  • Pour 3 tablespoons of the cheesecake filling into each cupcake liner.
  • Tap muffin tins on the counter to bring the bubbles up to the top and pop them with a toothpick.
  • Bake cheesecakes for 22 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool to room temp.

Topping

  • Place 2 teaspoons of raspberry jam on top of the cheesecakes where a little dip forms.
  • Move cheesecakes to the fridge to chill for 2 to 4 hours.

Notes

  • These are not mini cupcake sized cheesecake bites.
  • You can freeze these bites without the raspberry topping in an airtight container, and then defrost in the fridge overnight before serving.
