Mini Easter Cheesecakes

Cheesecake is my weakness. I love the rich texture and sweetness and that you can dress it up to suit any occasion. These Mini Easter Cheesecakes are scrumptious! They are really easy to make in only a few simple steps. Let me just say it’s hard to stop eating at just one!

You can decorate them anyway you like. I used jelly beans for mine, but you could mini eggs, coconut flakes, fresh fruit or just keep it simple and eat them plain. The vanilla wafer acts as a crust and it bakes right into the filling. You could also add a licorice string to make little Easter baskets.
