    My Mother used to make these mini cheesecakes with one difference; she would drop a whole vanilla wafer in the bottom of the cup cake wrapper; instead of making a crust.  -  14 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I don't know what I did wrong, but I felt for someone who has never made cheesecake before, that the instructions were not clear enough. For instance, are the wafers supposed to be crumbs or just small pieces? Either way, mine floated to the top. Also, my gas oven usually takes less time to cook, so I have to always adjust the cooking times but with this recipe, how do you know if it’s done? When it browns on top? When the fork comes out clean? I had no idea. I used regular cups because I couldn't find the mini ones, and cooked it for 10 minutes, but was unsure if they were done or not so I cooked them another 3 minutes. After they had cooled, they tasted great but the texture was terrible. It was grainy and gel like. I left them in the fridge over night, and it became firmer, but still had the terrible texture. Was this because it wasn't cooked long enough? Over cooked? Or was it because the wafers floated up into the cups and maybe changed the texture? I hate to give this recipe such a poor rating, but the instructions were terrible for someone who has never made cheesecake before. The taste was good though, especially with the "cheesecake" flavored cream cheese.  -  24 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
