Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • Green food coloring (optional)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. Make the Crust:
    • In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter until well combined.
    • Divide the crust mixture evenly among the cupcake liners, pressing down firmly to form the crust.
  3. Prepare the Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and green food coloring (if using), and mix until creamy and well combined.
    • In a separate bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until smooth.
  4. Assemble and Bake:
    • Spoon or pipe the cheesecake mixture over the crust in the cupcake liners, filling each almost to the top.
    • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the cheesecakes are set but still slightly jiggly in the center.
    • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Chill and Serve:
    • Once cooled, refrigerate the cheesecakes for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
    • Before serving, garnish each cheesecake with fresh mint leaves for a delightful finishing touch.
