Small Cheesecake

Hey everyone! I love it when I find recipes that don't make a mountain of food, especially when it comes to desserts which can be kinda... tempting:@). I copied this Small Cheesecake recipe as soon as I saw it.
Rita says it takes about 10 minutes to put together, even quicker with a store bought graham cracker crust.
Just remember to have your cream cheese at room temp.
I debated about making a fruit topping to go with it but I'm so glad I didn't-this is really good as is! 
Never had the sour cream topping before-LOVE IT! This would be nice for Mother's Day.
I highly recommend trying this beautifully creamy, great little cheesecake:@)

Small Cheesecake
(1) 8 oz brick of cream cheese, room temp
1/2 C sugar
1 Tblsp lemon juice-I used lime
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
2 eggs
Graham cracker pie crust (purchased pre-made or I suggest an 8" pie plate if you have it, 9" if not)

Sour Cream Topping
1 C sour cream
2 Tblsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
  1. Beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add everything except eggs, mix well.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time and mix slowly until just combined. 
  4. Pour into graham cracker crust.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until set.
  6. While it's baking mix the sour cream topping.
  7. Remove from oven and add Sour Cream topping.
  8. Bake for another 10 minutes.
  9. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour, then place in fridge for at least 2 hours to chill.
  10. Store covered in fridge.
Have a happy day:@)

  1. This is a great little cheesecake, Lynn. Will give this a try. I do love a sour cream topping on cheesecake. I think I would add a smidgen more of vanilla for mine. xo

  3. I went to an event this week that served individual cheese cakes in cupcake papers. I could have eaten about four of them, but didn't want to look or feel like a little piggie! I'm going to try that with this recipe. Thanks!

  14. I'm so glad that you liked my cheesecake and are spreading the word. I never put salt in anymore either and have also used lime juice. It's always good and just the right amount. Thank you for the feature.

  17. This looks so good! That sour cream topping does look delicious. I also love a recipe that makes just enough to have for dessert without having lots of leftovers for me to eat. :)

  18. I love a sour cream topping. I just wonder if because it is small if I would feel justified in eating the whole thing?

    Have a nice Sunday

  20. Lynn, I love cheesecake, and sometimes I think the simpler the better. This looks like a recipe that is rich and creamy and delicious entirely on its own without adding things like chocolate, fruit, peanut butter, heath bars, etc...not that I don't like those...but I am printing this one to try very soon. Thanks for sharing!

  30. I saw this on Rita's blog and thought it looked really good. I'm glad you tried it out and gave your thumbs up. One of my son's loves the no-bake cheesecake with cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Bet he'd love this one, too.

  31. Looks good! It reminds me of the cheese cupcakes we used to make with the sour cream topping.

  32. Lynn,
    The jam recipe is a winner! The baby baby pig is darling. And the last thing I need is this recipe - too tempting! Could eat one every day!

  33. There are three things which vie for position at the tip top of my favorite food list, and one of them is cheesecake. I can't resist it.

    I really shouldn't even be looking at pictures...

    (In case you care, the other two are German Chocolate cake and fettucine alfredo.

  34. Lynn, My husband is a cheesecake fan and this is the perfect size! I bet the sour cream topping is wonderful :)

  35. I've never made a cheesecake with a sour cream topping. I usually do a New York style...ugh. They are delicious but time consuming. I think I'll give this a go for a special treat one night next week!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lynn, The topping on this little cheesecake makes it extra special! I love the thought of a sour cream topping with a rich cream cheese! YUMMY! Cheesecake is Bobby's favorite dessert.
    This will be on my menu very soon! Thanks for joining ON THE MENU MONDAY and bringing this super dessert!

  37. Perfect!! I will sooo be trying this recipe.

  38. I stopped to say hello and as I was snooping on your other posts the cheesecake of course caught my eye (or my tastebuds). My thighs said I really should stick with the poor mans crab cakes, but just had to see the small cheesecake recipe.

  40. In our family we call this Cream Cheese Pie and it is my Dad's favorite. We make it for his birthday and Father's day.

    Only difference is that we use almond extract in the Sour Cream topping. Try it. Makes all the difference.
