Miniature Strawberry Jam Cheesecakes

Ingredients

1c. graham cracker crumbs
3T. butter, melted (I always use unsalted but..)
2 pkg. cream cheese (8oz. each), softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
strawberry jam

Preparation

1
ovens @ 350 please
2
In a small bowl combine the graham crackers, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Press (I used a mini rolling pen I have) about a tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of a 12 count cupcake pan lined with papers. Set aside.
3
In a large bowl beat (with a whisk or a mixer) the cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, and remaining sugar until smooth. Spoon over the crumbs in the liners and bake for about 15-16 minutes, just until the center is set.
4
Allow the cheese cakes to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan and refrigerate them for at least an hour before serving.
5
To serve you can remove the papers if you like (I didn’t, much cleaner on than off) and top with a dollop of strawberry jam.
