Parve Cheesecake Gems


I first saw these mini cakes at my friend Rina’s party. She had them nicely lined up on Lucite hot-pink trays. The effect was stunning, and they tasted delicious as well. If you’re looking for mini cheesecakes made with real dairy, try these cheesecake bites with amaretto glaze by Rivky Kleiman.

For more delicious cheesecakes like this one, see our post The Ultimate Cheesecake Roundup.


Make the Cheesecake Gems

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
2. Combine all the ingredients for the crumb mixture and press into the bottom of nonstick mini muffin tins. Bake for 10 minutes and then cool to room temperature.
3. Mix all the ingredients for cheese filling, except for the pie filling, and spoon into muffin tins. Bake for about 15 minutes or until set. Cool and remove from pan, cutting around the edges if necessary.
4. Meanwhile, spoon cherry pie filling into a strainer. Use a spoon to gently discard as much of the “jelly” as possible, being careful not to break the cherries. Spoon about two to three cherries onto the center of each mini cheesecake. Serve chilled.
