They are made with ingredients you probably have on hand. Even freezing them is an option for you to serve at later time. No fuss individual cheesecakes are easy to prepare and really delicious. You can top them off with any topping of your choice or serve them plain. Fresh fruit such as blueberries,raspberries,strawberries, peaches, and mangoes would be delicious. Pictured below is a raspberry sauce that is easy and fresh. White Cake is good to have on hand for any drop by friends that Summer may bring. 

No-Bake Cheesecakes

Graham Cracker Crust

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1 stick butter, melted

1/3 cup light brown sugar

Filling

2- (8) ounce packages cream cheese

1/3 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons sour cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream whipped

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Line muffin pans with cupcake liners. This recipe make 18 individual ones.

Set aside. Mixed together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and

brown sugar. Scoop one and a half to 2 tablespoons of crumbs into each paper liner. Press crumbs down with end of spoon. Bake crumbs in oven 350° for

five minutes. This is optional however baking it secures a tighter base for the crumbs. Remove from oven and cool. In a bowl whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream until stiff and set aside. In a bowl mix together cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, sour cream and vanilla extract. Gently fold in whipped cream to cream cheese mixture. Spoon mixture individually on top of crumb base. Cool and top with topping of your choice.

Raspberry Sauce

1 cup sugar 1 cup water

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries

*May substitute blueberries, or blackberries.

In a sauce pan combine sugar, water, cornstarch. Bring to a slight boil and stir until thickened. Add in raspberries and cook until fruit is mixed in well. Cool and spoon over individual cheesecakes. I have found this recipe works better by chilling these cheesecakes for up to three hours or overnight if possible before serving.
