So tasty, cute, and totally YUMMY! All the greatness of the original versions, but MINI! No need for a traditional water bath or for the lengthy cooling time.

Delicious and easy to make. I let my cream cheese set out to room temperature and added a little extra pumpkin spice. I also used a regular sized muffin/cupcake pan and made my own crust with graham cracker and butter. Read More

Great recipe! I cut all the ingredients in half and was able to make 48 mini (bite size) cheesecakes using a graham cracker crust. Lined my mini cupcake pan with mini liners combined one cup graham cracker crumb with 4 tablespoons of butter and 4 tablespoons of sugar and pressed into the bottom of each liner. Spooned pumpkin cheesecake mixture into each cup - filled almost to the top. Then baked for 15 minutes. Came out perfect! Read More

Awesome recipe! Very easy and the mini pie crusts are super convenient. Made these for my hubby to take to work for this coworkers and he deemed them "too good" to take in - he wanted them for himself! If you want to make something unique for a potluck or bake sale this is an excellent choice! Read More

Very tasty and simple! My co-workers who do not like pumpkin anything loved these! If you're on a budget then I recommend using cupcake tins and putting a gingersnap vanilla wafer or some other homemade cheesecake crust in the bottom. The Keebler mini tins run around 2.50 for a pack of 6 making it about 10 for the crust alone (you could make a whole other batch for less than that). Read More

Great recipe and so easy! The only thing I did differently was use a gingersnap cookie as the base for each cheesecake - quick easy and added extra flavor. Read More

A vanilla wafer cookie can also be used as the crust. How easy is that? Read More

This is by far the most delicious pumpkin flavored anything! I too let my cream cheese sit out for about an hour sifted the dry ingredients together before adding to the fluffed cream cheese. Also I made my own graham cracker crusts and baked these in a muffin pan. They got RAVE reviews!! Read More
