I hosted a baby shower for my sister this past weekend and decided that I’d make an attempt to bake the treats for the dessert table. The spread included chocolate covered marshmallow pops, cream puffs, banana pudding, a salted caramel cake, and these cute little mason jar cheesecakes. With only three ingredients for the crust and four ingredients for the filling, you can whip these up in no time!

I hosted a baby shower for my sister this past weekend and decided that I'd make an attempt to bake the treats for the dessert table. …
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick Unsalted butter
- 1 cup heavy cream cold
- 2 (8) oz block cream cheese room temperature
- 1 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup confectioners sugar increase if you prefer sweeter style cheesecake
- Combine the graham cracker crumbs and the brown sugar together in a small bowl.
- In a small pot on the stove, melt the butter completely. Add the melted butter to the crumbs and sugar and mix thoroughly.
- Using a small scooper or spoons, put one scoop of the crust into each mason jar and pat down with your fingers. Bake the jars at 350˚ for 12 minutes.
- Using a mixer, beat the cold heavy cream on high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer the whipped cream to bowl and set aside.
- Mix the cream cheese, greek yogurt and powdered sugar at low speed, then slowly increase speed to high as powdered sugar is incorporated. Beat until creamy.
- Add in half of the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. Then gently fold it in the remaining whipped cream to keep it airy.
- Using a piping bag, pipe the cream cheese mixture into the mason jars.
- Top with fresh fruit, such as blueberries, strawberries or raspberries as desired
