Individual cheesecakes with a sour cream topping.
If you’re fancying a XBox 360 treat, but the occasion doesn’t call for the Red Velvet Red Ring 360 cookies, this recipe might just do the trick. The slight tanginess of the sour cream topping fits well with the creamy cheesecake.
2 packages of 8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 c. sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 vanilla wafers
8 oz. sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Green decorator’s gel
You can use the 1/3-less-fat kind of cream cheese and still have fairly tasty mini cheesecakes. Be wary of the fat-free cream cheese. Whatever that stuff is, it doesn’t make for tasty eats.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Once the cream cheese has softened, blend together the cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, and sugar until smooth.
Place a vanilla wafer in the bottom of the muffin tin. Cover with filling until the muffin container is 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Take the tiny cheesecakes out before top of cheese cakes start turning brown. They are done when they are firm and the tops begin to crack.
Don’t worry when the centers of cheesecakes fall. We’ll be filling that up with, well, filling. Tasty filling.
While the cheesecakes are cooling, you can put together the sour cream topping. Crank up the oven temp to 425°F.
Mix together the sour cream, sugar, and almond extract.
Spoon the mixture into the depression of the cheesecake. It’ll take a couple of tablespoons per cheesecake.
After five to seven minutes, the cheesecakes will be done. Pull from the oven and allow to cool.
Once cooled, draw the 360 logo on top of the cheesecake with the decorator’s gel.
Refrigerate and chill before serving.
