I saw these on another blog and thought they were just so cute! Plus, I have been saving mason jars from salsa and other sauces so this is a great way to reuse them.
The only cheesecake I have ever made has been the instant, no-bake kind. Before taking on a whole cheesecake from scratch, I figured this could be a good transition.
Not only are they fun to make, but these are that much closer to fulfilling the whole instant gratification thing that our society is obsessed with...you don't even need a knife to cut it or a plate to put it on. This goes from the oven straight to your mouth. Well, I take that back. You are supposed to let it chill in the fridge for several hours first. Buutttt I just didn't have time for that. It does take much less effort when it comes to actually digging in though.
For those that like things plain and simple, here you go. But these cheesecakes can be done however you like. I added strawberries, a homemade strawberry sauce, and some crushed graham crackers to mine.
I have to admit these didn't end up being quite what I hoped for. The flavor was there, but even after sitting in the fridge all day, they were still a little too soft. It was more of a pudding for me than a cheesecake. I did halve the recipe, so something could have gone wrong there. Maybe more cream cheese would help?
You can find the recipe at My Baking Addiction. Sorry for not posting it myself, but due to lack of time it's going to have to wait. Thanks for understanding :)
Have a great day!
