"These mini blackberry pie cheesecakes feature a creamy cheesecake base, followed by a layer of blackberry jam, and a mini lattice pie crust on top. Store bought jam and pie crust make this treat easier to whip up."

Recipe

  • 1/ 2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 ounces room temperature full fat, brick style cream cheese
  • 1/ 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large room temperature egg
  • 1 sheet pre-made pie dough
  • 1/ 3 cup blackberry jam

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line 6 cups of a muffin tin.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and the melted butter.

  • Step 3

    Evenly divide this mixture into each lined cup of your tin and use the bottom of a spoon to form the crust. Place this in the oven to bake for 5 minutes and then remove and set aside.

  • Step 4

    In a large bowl, blend together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and room temperature egg until smooth.

  • Step 5

    Divide this batter evenly amongst each of the six lined cups.

  • Step 6

    Place the muffin tin back in the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the centers of your cheesecakes are just set. Once finished, remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes before moving to the refrigerator to further cool for one hour.

  • Step 7

    Meanwhile, make your mini lattices. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and use a pizza cutter to slice the pie dough into 1/4 inch strips.

  • Step 8

    Working on a lightly floured cookie sheet, weave the strips into a big lattice. Then, use a circle cutter or glass the same diameter of your cheesecakes to cut out 6 little lattice tops. (Leaving them on the pan while removing the surrounding excess - which can be frozen and saved.)

  • Step 9

    Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 min, until just golden brown. Let cool.

  • Step 10

    Assemble your cheesecakes by spreading a spoonful of jam on each one, and then top with a mini pie crust. Enjoy!
