Member Recipe: Cheesecake Cups


I love cheesecake but making can be a bit of a pain. This recipe for cheesecake cups is so simple that I will throw a recipe together before friends join me for dinner. Made with cottage cheese and cream cheese, these cups aren't heavy like ordinary cheesecake.

8 ounces cream cheese, softened (Don't use low fat.)

8 ounces (1 cup) small curd cottage cheese, at room temperature (Don't use low fat.)

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine cream cheese and cottage cheese. Blend until smooth.

  3. Add the sugar, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Pulse to combine.

  4. Divide the mixture evenly among 6 custard cups.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until mixture is puffy and does not jiggle.

  6. Remove cups and place on a wire rack to cool. Custard will collapse as it cools, this is normal.

  7. Serve warm or chilled. In the center of the cup, you could put a few berries of a dollop of jam.

Makes 6 cups.
