No bake blueberry cheesecakes cups

blueberry cheesecake cups. The Hungry Mum

I have written before of my love for individual desserts. I think they look chic, there is less mess when serving to guests, and as they are small you can have more than one #forTheWin

I had some cream cheese, Greek yogurt and frozen blueberries winking at me every time I opened the fridge and freezer so I set about creating a dessert where they could shine.

The idea came to me for blueberry cheesecake but I wanted to create something a bit less formal than an entire cake, and create something a bit more me.

I served these cute individual blueberry cheesecakes recently when my mother-in-law and her partner joined us for dinner. I managed just a mouthful of mine after a huge meal, whereupon the Hungry Dad swooped on mine and gallantly polished it off.

This is a no-bake recipe but I did bake the biscuit (cookie) base as I would rather quickly rustle up some simple bickies from scratch than drive to the supermarkets with the kids during school holidays. So lazy πŸ˜‰ If you aren’t as lazy as me, or you have plain sweet biscuits (cookies) in your pantry feel free to use those instead.

I found the bickie recipe on allrecipes.com.au

This recipe makes four cheesecakes with some biscuits left over. They keep for quite a few days in a sealed container.

Easy oat biscuits /cookies

75g self raising flour

75g porridge oats

75g sugar

75g butter

1 tablespoon golden syrup

1 tablespoon milk

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a medium bowl stir together the flour, oats and sugar.

Melt butter, syrup and milk in a saucepan and stir until heated through. Stir in to the dry ingredients until well combined.

Make balls into the size of large walnuts and gently flatten, allowing room to spread.

Bake for around 13 minutes until golden brown. Cool on tray for 5 minutes before placing on wire rack to cool completely.

LET’S GET TO IT:

Beat 250g cream cheese in electric mixer until lose then beat in the yogurt and caster sugar until combined. Stir in zest.

In a small serving glass break biscuits to fit then top with enough cheesecake mix to generously cover. Sprinkle over a few blueberries then repeat the layering, topping with the extra berries.

Place in fridge until serving time. I allowed mine to sit for about four hours.

    Yum! Sitting at home, on this our ANZAC day, I’m busily looking at blog posts. If looking at yummy recipes made you fat, I’d be in severe trouble. πŸ˜‰

    Any type of individual treat is awesome in my book! These look so tasty, can’t imagine how good these must be during blueberry season when the blueberries are perfection!
