Say Cheese...

cakes that is!

These mini cheesecakes are perfect for the holidays 
and I make them every year for Christmas and New Year's Day.

They are a family favorite of ours and for good reason... they are simply

They aren't overly time consuming or difficult to make.

You will need:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
3(8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees
Combine crumbs, sugar and butter.  
Press equal amounts into paper lined muffin cups.
Beat cream cheese until fluffy.
Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Spoon equal amounts into cups and bake 20 minutes or until cakes spring back.
Cool, chill and garnish with whatever topping you prefer.
I like to use cherry topping especially at Christmas ~
 I think it adds a nice festive look.
The recipe makes two dozen so they're perfect for entertaining too.
I hope you will give these a try 
and I'm sure they will become a family favorite 
of yours too!
