Expert Tips

  • These little cheesecakes are so versatile. Try other seasonal fruit on top, and omit the whipped cream or powdered sugar, if desired. For a caramel apple version, top with canned apple pie filling and caramel topping from a jar.
  • For even more crunch, sprinkle the cheesecakes with some extra crushed Frosted Toast Crunch™ cereal.
  • These cheesecakes can be made up to 2 days ahead; keep refrigerated until serving.
