We have tested scores of mini cheesecake recipes and this is THE ONE!

One of my readers, Marta, wrote in with her 3-ingredient baby cheesecakes recipe last month and I instantly fell in love with the flavor, texture and how completely EASY they were. This recipe makes 24 cupcake-sized cheesecakes.

Mini Cheesecake Recipe with caramel and whipped cream on a plate

Ingredients for Mini Cheesecake Recipe:

  • The sweetened condensed milk is the secret ingredient, making the cheesecake perfectly sweetened and creamy smooth.
  • For the topping, we used our easy caramel sauce (you won’t want store-bought after trying it!).

Ingredients for mini cheesecakes

*See notes for Gluten Free Options

How to Make Cheesecake Crust:

1. Prep: Preheat Oven to 350˚F. Line a 24-count standard-sized muffin tin with cupcake liners. Combine 1 1/2 cups crumbs with 6 Tbsp melted butter and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

2. Stir until crumbs are evenly moistened, then divide evenly between 24-count, lined muffin tins (1 Tbsp in each). Press the crust into the base and slightly up the sides.

How to Make Mini Cheesecakes:

1. In a large bowl, mix 16 oz cream cheese and 3 eggs with whisk attachment (or with a hand mixer) on high speed 5 minutes, or until smooth, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add 14 oz condensed milk and mix on LOW speed** until blended (2 minutes).

2. Divide mix evenly over the 24 crusts – filling about 3/4 full (or a level ice cream scoop in each one) and bake at 350˚F for 15 minutes. They should be set with a very slight jiggle in the center. Don’t over-bake. If you notice them starting to crack in the oven, they are over-baking.

3. Cool to room temp in the baking dish then spoon this caramel sauce over each one. Refrigerate 2 hours then top with homemade whipped cream (see “how to make whipped cream” below) and dust with cinnamon if desired. Serve with or without liners.

Make-Ahead Tip: You can completely assemble, decorate, cover and refrigerate overnight. Ours tasted and looked perfect the next day. We just love make-ahead desserts!

Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs from 12 whole crackers*
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the Mini Cheesecakes:

Topping Ingredients:

Instructions

How to Make the Crust:

  1. Prep: Preheat Oven to 350˚F. Line a 24-count muffin tin with standard cupcake liners. Combine 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 6 Tbsp melted butter and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Stir to evenly moisten crumbs.

  2. Divide crumbs between 24 cupcake liners (about 1 Tbsp in each). Push crumbs into the base and slightly up the sides using a small spoon or your fingers.

How to Make Mini Cheesecakes:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together 16 oz cream cheese and 3 eggs with on high speed 5 minutes, until blended and smooth, scraping down bowl as needed. Add condensed milk and mix on low speed** until blended (2 min).

  2. Divide cheesecake mix evenly between cupcake liners - about 3/4 full (or a flat ice cream scoop in each one) and bake at 350˚F for 15 min. They should be set with a very slight jiggle in the center. Don't over-bake. If you notice them starting to crack in the oven, they are over-baking.

  3. Cool to room temp in baking dish then spoon 1/2 to 1 Tbsp caramel sauce over each one. Refrigerate 2 hrs or until fully chilled then top with whipped cream using a piping bag with large star tip. Lightly dust with cinnamon if desired. Serve with or without liners.

How to Make Whipped Cream:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup cold heavy cream, 1 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla and beat together with an electric mixer on high speed for 2 minutes or until whipped and fluffy.

Recipe Notes

*For gluten free, use GF crackers/cookies or omit the crust and proceed with recipe as directed. The crust helps them rise more evenly but they still taste great without it.
**Cooks Tip: Mixing the condensed milk on LOW speed helps knock out excess air bubbles which can cause the cheesecakes to crack.

    Hi Natasha! I love every recipe of yours and have always had a great result. But this time something went wrong.
    I just made the mini cheesecakes exactly as the recipe but when i took them out of the oven they were a little cracking and a minute later a big hole in the center forms.

    Whats do you think that happens?

      Hi Maria, I have not had that experience but I’d be more than happy to troubleshoot! Was anything altered in the recipe? Was it baked all the way? I would also recommend checking your oven temp to be sure it is calibrated.

    I halved the recipe bc I am not really a cheesecake person, but wanted to try this since it’s a cupcake size cheesecake. The outcome didn’t taste like cheesecake, as all I can taste is the condensed milk. Maybe I did something wrong, but I don’t think I’m making this again. The only thing I liked was the whipped cream topping.

      Hi! I haven’t tried freezing mini cheesecakes, but I imagine these would freeze and thaw fine. I suggest thawing in the fridge and definitely add the topping before serving and not ahead of time.

    Hi,
    I would like to know if I can make this recipe for a cake . If yes, what size round pan should I use?
    Also, I made this recipe for my friends (cupcakes) and they LOVED it! ^.^

      Hi Carmelle, I haven’t tried this as a full cake so I can’t say for sure or give baking instructions on that. I’m so glad you enjoyed the mini cheesecakes. When we make a full-size cheesecake our cheesecake with blueberry topping is our go-to.

        These are awesome!! I made these for a work function and got rave reviews. Someone even asked if I can make it in a 9 inch pan… said that it was the right amount of sweet!! I looked at recipe with the blueberry topping. Is it also not as sweet? Like this doesn’t call for any sugar…

          Just 1 tbsp sugar for the topping, the condensed milk already makes it sweet and creamy smooth.

    Hi Natasha,

    I’m sure you answered this in the long string of comments, but I want to be certain the recipe and bake time is for regular sized cupcakes pans, and not the mini.

    I’m trying this recipe (and your caramel sauce) out for a Christmas Eve party.

    Thanks so much!

      Hi Paige, these are calling “mini” since it’s not a large normal sized cheesecake. I have only baked these in a regular cupcake tin and haven’t tested them as minis. They would definitely bake faster as minis. I hope this helps!

    Is the whip cream stabilized or will it melt on the cakes in the refrigerator?

      November 30, 2019

      Hi Joni, I highly recommend adding the topping before serving. I have kept leftover cheesecakes in the refrigerator with the topping on and it doesn’t melt if you beat the cream to stiff peaks before piping it on, but I think it looks its best when piped the day it is served. Also, be sure to use heavy whipping cream. The additional fat content will stabilize the cream and keep it from melting.

    Can you use premade whipped cream? or even if I use your recipe for whipped cream, there is no way to put it on and expect it to not get runny in a few minutes as whipped cream does. I would love to make and bring to party. Should i wait to put whipped cream on or does yours stand up longer than traditional store bought.
