Your family will love these four Mini No-Bake Cheesecake Jars. Delightful, single-serve cheesecakes are topped with a variety of delicious, homemade fruity concoctions. And it goes in four different versions of all-loved desserts!
First is a pretty classic cherry topping: you can go with fresh or frozen cherries, or use some confiture.
Next is this twist on lemon meringue pie, but a cheesecake version.
For our third masterpiece, strawberries and bananas are such a classic combination for spring and summer.
Lastly, and quite frankly our favorite, Blueberry Lime!
You can make the cheesecake filling and assemble the jars up to 5 days in advance. Add toppings when ready to serve. To make a more authentic hardened crust at the bottom, mix crushed graham crackers with 3 tablespoons melted butter before evenly dividing in the jars. After dividing in the jars, cook in the oven at 350ºF for 5 mins. Remove and let cool completely before adding cheesecake filling.
