Celebratory Cheesecakes

When thinking of a perfect little treat to share with friends and family for pre-New Years festivities, these celebratory cheesecakes came to mind!  Between the creamy cheesecake and Milano cookie crust, these are bound to be a party-please! 

Celebratory Cheesecakes

  • 1 pkg. Milano Pepperidge Farm cookies
  • 2-3 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Put Milano cookies into a food processor and ground them finely.
  3. Mix cookie crumbs with 2-3 tbsp. melted butter.
  4. Place cupcake wrappers into a 12 count cupcake tray.
  5. Place about 1-2 tbsp. of cookie mixture into each cupcake wrapper and press down to form a crust.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.
  7. Once mixed, scoop mixture on top of each crust, leaving just a little bit of room at the top.
  8. Bake for 40 min.
  9. Cool and then refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  10. Before serving, top with fruit or sprinkles, or eat plain.*
    *Feel free to keep these in the cupcake wrappers or gently take out to serve.
