What Makes Mini Cheesecake So Great
Cheesecake is one of my all time favourite desserts. Notice, I said one of my favourites. Because you can’t limit dessert to just one category, right?
I hardly ever have the chance to bake cheesecake because I’d be eating most of it myself. Only my son likes it, so there would be a lot of leftovers with a big cheesecake.
And that’s where Mini Cheesecakes come into play. What a great idea, right?
- They are under 200 calories per serving!

How to Serve These Mini Blueberry Compote Cheesecakes
These Cheesecakes are great just the way they are, no additions needed. they already have all the key components of a great dessert. They are great for an after dinner dessert because they are small and not too filling.
Can You Make These in Advance
Yes, the cheesecakes can be made the day before serving and stored in the fridge. Don’t top with the cream and the blueberry compote until just before serving. The toppings are best added fresh before serving.
Can You Freeze These Cheesecakes
Again, no problem. Just store them in a freezer proof container. They will keep up to a month in the freezer. To defrost, take them out and keep them in the fridge until they naturally defrost. And again, don’t top them until just before serving for best results
