Never gave any recipe 5 starts before. Love Cheesecake but much like everyone else who wants to spend 6 Hours making a whole big Cheesecake for just me? So I set out to find the best mini cheesecake recipe and I have 100% found it! First off I too went through dozens of other recipes only to come to this one because of the crust. I have nothing bad to say about the vanilla wafers because I have never tried them. To Graham Cracker Crust is 1 of the best things about cheesecake. As for the lemon zest and juice. I did not use it simply because I did not have it. I have seen that addition of zest on many cheesecake recipes along the way. There is a technical benefit but what that is exactly escapes me right now. I did exactly what the instruction said to and they were PERFECT! Look, Taste, Consistency everything could not have been better. Tip** After you spoon in the GC Crust take a metal or even plastic measuring cup (smallest you have 1/4 C. Maybe)and use that to press down. That will ensure an even crust every time. I have made it many times since that first time and have tried all kinds of toppings. Mostly the pie fillings i.e. Cherry, Blueberry or Strawberry. Anything you see on your favorite cheesecake you can put on these. Lastly Please do everyone a favor and use the foil liners. They not only look so nice they make for a much easier clean up. P.S. I had to double the recipe because I just couldn't see making only 6....
