Lazy Lady Little Cheesecakes

As much as I love, LOVE, LOVE making things from scratch I simply didn’t have time.

I had a lot to do in the kitchen this day. My boyfriend’s parents were coming over for dinner to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I was making my all day spaghetti and meatballs (started at 9am), salad, and garlic bread. What is a birthday without something sweet?! My boyfriend actually got my to have cheesecake for the first time in March. LOVE! One day I will make it 95%+ from scratch I promise!

Ingredients:

  • Graham cracker crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoon of sugar (I used Truvia- a natural, no calorie sweetener)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Cheesecake:
  • 1 tub of Philadelphia cheesecake filling
  • 1 cup of Chocolate chips
  • 1/4 can of cherry pie filling (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Line cupcake pan.  Mix crust ingredients together well. Spoon into cupcake liners and press in mixture. Bake for 5 minutes.

If you want plain cheesecake then spoon filling directly from tub to cupcake liner. I made chocolate chip cheesecake by mixing in 1 cup or so of chocolate chips into the filling.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.

With everything I had to do I forgot to take a picture with the Cherry pie topping! Oops, sorry.

Add your favorite topping and enjoy!
