Graham Cracker Crust:

c graham cracker crumbs

2 tbsp. melted unsalted butter

1 ½ tbsp. granulated white sugar

¼ tsp kosher salt (or ⅛ tsp regular salt)

Cheesecake Filling:

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

¼ c sour cream or mascarpone cheese (full fat)

¼ c granulated white sugar

1 large egg

1 ½ tsp vanilla extract


Set your temperature to 350 degrees.

Prepare the Crust: Mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar and a pinch of salt. Press this mixture into muffin tins to create the crust.

Place the crusts, in the oven. Bake them for 4 to 5 minutes. Once done allow them to cool down.

Make the Filling: In a bowl combine cream cheese at room temperature with cream (or mascarpone) sugar, an egg and some vanilla extract. Mix until you achieve a smooth consistency.

Assemble the Cheesecakes: Spoon the prepared filling over each crust in the muffin tins evenly.

Put them back in the oven. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes. The cheesecakes are ready when their centers no longer jiggle.

Allow them to cool down completely before transferring to the refrigerator. Refrigerate, for 3 hours.

Completely chilled, take the bites out of the pan. Serve as is or enjoy with your preferred topping.


To savor the Easy Mini Cheesecake Bites without gluten you can easily make an adjustment, to the crust. Instead of using the graham cracker crumbs try using your preferred gluten-free graham-style crumbs that can be found at many health food stores. These gluten-free options provide the crunchiness and delightful sweetness guaranteeing that your cheesecake foundation is equally mouthwatering, as the classic version.
