Fruity desserts are always great to make during the summer months. These mini cheesecakes are perfect for a small party or get together. Your guests can sample just a little bite and still indulge in the other dishes there. Continue reading for the recipe!
Preheat oven to 325°F
Bake for 5-6 minutes.
For the filling…
Bake for 20 minutes
I don’t have a double boiler set, so I improvise :). Add about an inch of water to a medium saucepan and place a bowl on top. This bowl should fit inside but the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Keep on medium heat while cooking to keep the bowl warm.
Pour mixture into heated bowl. Continue whisking over the heat until it can stick to a wooden spoon but still be poured. This will take quite a long time (about 20 minutes) so get some music to listen to :).
Place one layer of plastic wrap over it, touching the top layer of the curd, and another over the top of the bowl to make sure it is completely sealed. Place in the refrigiratoe for about 30-45 minutes.
After the curd is completely chilled, spoon on top of the cheesecakes. Note: topping like orange/lime curd could be added instead of lemon. Also, if this is being eaten during the colder months, caramel or chocolate are also great toppings.
