    I love your version — it looks so delicious. I actually couldn't taste the marbled blueberry puree very much in mine so adding a more substantial topping is a great idea. Happy holidays!

    These are so festive and fun! Luv the touch of orange throughout! These are perfect for a holiday table – great idea to vary the topping depending on the time of year! Delicious!

    These are just what I have been looking for all week! I wanted a cranberry cheesecake with fewer ingredients and no heavy cream. The mini-cheesecake part is just the icing on the cake.
    As soon as I saw these last night I had to make them. They turned out great, so much faster then traditional cheesecake. Thanks!

    This might be a stupid question but did you use a mini cupcake tin, or a standard size?
    Thanks!
    🙂
