    I made them today for my Mom's 75th birthday! What a hit! I cooked them for 30 minutes. I also used blueberries

      An absolute hands down delicous, creamy, crowd pleasing dessert. We just had our Thanksgiving lunch at work and I had decided on individual cheesecakes, not having made them before. Followed the recipe to the T and they came out beautiful. My co-workers raved all day and the next, as I had made 3 dozen. People kept saying, I normally do not like cheesecake but these are so delicious, and one person said you need to open a bakery and sell nothing but cheesecake. I was flattered. Instead of Apricot Jam, I opted for a homemade Blackberry/Blueberry preserver topped with a fresh blackberry/ blueberry, a lemon curd topped with a fresh raspberry, and a sweet spicy red pepper jelly...as we are in the south after-all. Truly these are an amazing treat that will wow your guests, with minimal effort.

    Sinfully delicious. I thought this would be nothing special but its quickly become a favorite. Especially good when they are still warm. I like to call this sunny side up cheesecake because the jam in the middle looks like an egg yolk! I used Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves warmed and strained and the consistency was perfect.

    Couldn't fine chocolate wafer cookies, so used chocolate graham crackers instead. Had some problems because I used foil muffin cups because I wanted to make these in a 24-muffin tin but the liners didn't fit. So some of the cheesecakes weren't perfect looking. I found the apricot jam to be a little runny after I applied it to the cheesecake. Flavor is basic cheesecake and these are a wonderful novelty for a party. Easily manipulated recipe if you want to add flavors like berries, etc.

    These are amazing, my husband and coworkers LOVED LOVED LOVED them!!! I found that 3 tbsp of butter made the crust a little too oily- 2 tbsp was just right. Will definitely make these again!

    I know that this is a little late to reply to the comment below, but in case it helps anyone else wondering the same question - yes, they do set when they're chilled, don't worry, they're supposed to come out of the oven a little wobbly and a bit shiny.

    I just took mine out of the oven after 30 minutes, and they are still very soft in the centre. They are in the fridge now, but did anyone else have this issue? Will they harden up after being chilled?

    I love these - so does everyone else. My only issue is the jam becomes runny and not very pretty. Any suggestions?

    This is a delicious recipe that never fails. They're perfect for entertaining as they can be made well in advance. I usually make a compote with either fresh or frozen berries and a little lemon juice and then decorate with a fresh, whole berry or two. ALWAYS are gone in seconds and raved about.
