Ingredients

    Cheesecake Crust
  • 2 cups graham crackers or Oreos, crushed
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Cheesecake
  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Topping
  • 1 21 ounce can of blueberry pie filling
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice - optional

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line mini muffin tins with paper cups.

In a medium bowl, crush oreos or graham crackers into crumbs. Measure 2 cups and combine with melted butter and sugar. Mix until combined well.

Press 1/2 tablespoons cracker crumbs into the bottom of each cupcake liner and set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese on lowest setting until smooth and fluffy.

Add sugar and salt while beating. Add eggs one at a time, mixing until incorporated. Stir in vanilla and heavy cream. Mix well.

Allow cheesecake to rest for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare crust. In a medium bowl, crush oreos or graham crackers into crumbs. Measure 2 cups and combine with melted butter and sugar. Mix until combined well. Press 1/2 tablespoons cracker crumbs into the bottom of each cupcake liner. Scoop cheesecake batter into prepared crusts and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until firm but the centers of the cheesecakes still a bit jiggly.

Remove from the oven and refrigerate (a few hours or even overnight).

Serve with chilled blueberries filling on top.

    Hi! why do you have to leave the cheesecake to rest a little?

      cheesecake is very delicate and it needs to rest because it will easily crack and become a mess until it hardens more 🙂
