Mini Cheesecakes

My darling daughter (in-law) brought me a brownie pan, one with separate squares for each brownie and I made little cheesecakes in it.  Actually, two of my granddaughters made the cheesecake under a little guidance. I used an old recipe of mine that I have used for years when I want a light tasting cheesecake.  The squares were adorable but I could not get them out of the pan without damaging them.  I am sure brownies will work better.

Easy Cheesecake from Moms Who Think

The only difference between my recipe and this is that I used brown sugar with the sour cream and vanilla.


2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons (brown) sugar
8 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Easy Cheesecake

Beat cream cheese, 2/3 cup sugar, 3 eggs, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with mixer until smooth. 

Pour into well greased brownie square molds.

Bake 22 minutes at 350 degrees F. 

Remove cheesecake and cool for 5 minutes.

Combine 3 Tablespoons (brown)sugar, sour cream, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread over warm cheesecake and return to oven for 5 minutes.
Cool and refrigerate.
