For this scrumptious recipe, I found a wonderful source at U-Taste. Now, let's get ready to create these bite-sized delights that are sure to leave you wanting more!

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

For the cheesecake filling:

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: Lemon zest or other flavorings for added taste

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Crust

In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Mix until the mixture resembles wet sand and all the ingredients are well combined. The mixture should hold together when pressed. Press the crust mixture firmly into the bottom of a greased or lined 9x9-inch baking pan. Set aside.

Step 2: Prepare the Cheesecake Filling

In a separate mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and any optional flavorings you desire, such as lemon zest or extracts. Mix until everything is well incorporated and the filling is smooth.

Step 3: Bake and Cool

Pour the cheesecake filling over the prepared crust in the baking pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in a preheated oven at 325°F (160°C) for about 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly. Remove from the oven and let the cheesecake cool completely at room temperature. Once cooled, refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight to firm up.

Step 4: Cut into Bite-Sized Pieces

Once the cheesecake is fully chilled and firm, remove it from the refrigerator. Using a sharp knife, cut the cheesecake into bite-sized squares or desired shapes. Wipe the knife clean between cuts to ensure clean edges on each piece.

Step 5: Serve and Savor!

Arrange the Cheesecake Bites on a platter or in mini cupcake liners for a neat presentation. These delightful bites are ready to be devoured! You can enjoy them as is, or if you want to get creative, feel free to garnish them with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, a dollop of whipped cream, or fresh berries.

Congratulations! You've successfully created a batch of irresistible Cheesecake Bites—a miniature version of the classic cheesecake that's sure to please. These bite-sized treats are perfect for any occasion and will satisfy your cheesecake cravings in the most delightful way. So, grab a plate, savor each heavenly bite, and enjoy the creamy, indulgent goodness of these Cheesecake Bites.
