    1. Hi there!

      You can make the cherries look like that by using the tip of a teaspoon to spoon them on top. I like do do 3-4 cherries per cheesecake.

      Thanks for the comment!

  6. Someone said put a vanilla wafer in the bottom, instead of the delicious crumbs, easy route. And a bowl of water in the oven while baking (on another rack) will keep the cheesecake from "cracking".

  7. How do you make homemade filling? I have raspberries instead of strawberries in my freezer and I would like to use those for the fillings instead.

    1. Hey Raquel!

      You can use this recipe for making a homemade raspberry sauce: http://naomi-sugarspice.blogspot.ca/2013/07/easy-homemade-raspberry-sauce-recipe.html

      If you wanted to make your own cherry or strawberry sauce, you can find a recipe on this blog in the post about banana splits - Just look it up in the search bar, and it should come up! :) If using that recipe for cherries, make sure to use sour cherries if you can find them, and pit them before cooking with them if you can. (A bobby pin works really well to dig out the pits.)

      All the best!

    1. Hi Jose!

      Yes, you should be able to make it without the cookie crust on the bottom - The cheesecake part will get brown along the edge a bit, but it should still taste good. So glad you like my blog!

      Thanks for your comment!

  10. Hi! I am wanting to make these for a picnic, and i don't think it would be as good of a presentation having family top their own mini cheesecakes, so i was wondering if it would be okay to top with cherry filling for overnight storage?

    1. Hi there!

      You can definitely top them the night before, if you keep them refrigerated and make sure they stay upright and cool during transportation. They might not look *quite* as perfect when they arrive as they would when they're first assembled, but they should be alright - I have made these for wedding sweet tables before, and I always top all of the cheesecakes at home before I deliver them.

      All the best, and have fun with it!

  13. Thanks for the recipe! Do you think that I could freeze these for an event next week?

    1. Yes, absolutely! I do that often. Just don't put the cherries on until just before you serve them.

  14. If I wanted to do strawberries instead of cherries, could I? If so, how?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You totally could! You can either use a strawberry sauce recipe (mine is posted here - http://www.naomicakes.com/2012/07/banana-splits-tutorial.html), or just arrange fresh sliced strawberries on the top. You could also do glazed fruit, which you could likely find a tutorial on Google... Hope this helps!

  15. Those look simple and beautiful! Can't wait to try them. I'll have to adjust for gluten free, which should be simple, but I was wondering if you've ever added chocolate, nuts or caramel? Maybe push a caramel into cake just out of oven or should I do it before baking? I also wondered if the same recipe would work and set properly if done as a single in a pie dish? I will try your version first but was wondering for the future how much variation I could use. Thank you so much! Shelley

    1. Gluten free won't be a problem, and of course, be creative! I have not used this recipe specifically with chocolate or caramel, but having experience with cheesecake, I can tell you it will work! I wouldn't add a hard caramel candy, but rather something soft - so you can either melt caramels with cream to make it softer and then put some over the batter before you bake it, or you could cheat and get some soft caramel ice cream topping to drizzle over top... either way, I'm sure it will be great! You could also bake this in a pie dish as well, but it will likely need a bit more time in the oven; just make sure it's set before you take it out (jiggle it a little bit to see).

      Thanks for your comment, and enjoy! I'd love to hear of your success as you experiment.

  17. I would like to make these, but I would like to top them with lemon . should I put lemon pie filling on top or do you have a better recipe for lemon cheesecake?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I love adding lemon zest to the lemon filling for a bit of zip. You could also use pie filling on top, but I think I would sooner make lemon pie filling and spoon some into the unbaked cheese filling, and then bake it like that for an easy lemon cheesecake... Hope it works well for you!

  18. Are these made in a mini cupcake pan or are they regular cupcake size? Thanks :)

    1. Regular cupcake size, but you can make them either way and the recipe works great. You'll just get a lot more minis out of this than you would large ones. :)

  19. Was on a cheesecake kick today and found your recipe on pinterest and me and my boyfriend made them immediatly! It was fairly quick and easy and they turned out great! Thanks!!

  20. I used to make these when I was head chef at a nursing home, with one exception, instead of using a graham cracker crust, I would use a vanilla wafer cookie or lorna doones as my base.
