Default Cheesecake cupcakes

I would like to make cheesecake in a cupcake/muffin pan.

But it occurs to me that that the crumb crust that I usually make for my
cheesecakes may not work in the cupcake shape.

Can I simply bake the crumb crust and expect it to hold? Does anyone
have a different crust recipe that will work?

I was very satisfied with this rather interesting combination. Cheesecake
in a brownie cup. Not exactly a crust, but maybe it's of interest.
You can switch the cheesecake mixture with own.

It probably won't hold onto the steep sides of the tins, but it will work by
using it only on the bottom of the bare pan or, ideally, in foil baking
cups.

Your crust will probably be fine. An alternative would be to put a cookie
in each cup. A vanilla wafer, ginger snap, or unfilled chocolate cookie
would work depending on the flavor of the cheesecake. Another alternative
would be a disk of sponge cake. You can make a thin sponge cake (like for a
jellyroll) and cut disks with a biscuit cutter for each cake. I often make
a sponge layer in the pan and then pour in the cheesecake batter over it.

Any type of crushed cookie crust will work.
No need to parbake like on a large chesecake.
The crust does not need to cover the sides, BTW.

I don't know if this would help you or not, but because I'm lazy, when I
need to make individual servings of cheesecake, I just make it in a large
square or rectangular shaped pan and cut it into the sizes I need and put
each serving in the "fancier" paper/foil muffin papers, each w/ a bit of
whipped cream or bettercream and fresh fruit. I've also cut the servings
with a round cutter from time to time, but it can be a bit of a pain. Like
I said, I'm lazy, and usually quite busy, so this is my alternative to
actually pouring each serving seperately and having to clean up the mess I
ultimately make in doing so! (LOL)

Also, at work we have these waxy paper cups that we make individual
cheesecakes in (I work for a bakery that supplies cheesecake to different
restaurants, and a few want them in individual servings instead of slices).
They are a few inches tall, you just put the crumbs in the bottom, tap them
down, and fill with cheesecake filling and bake. I'm not quite sure where
we got them, though...but I'm sure if you checked with somewhere like
Gordon's food service or another supplier of baking goods, or did a google
search, you could be pointed in the right direction.

Here is a recipe that I've used since 1974. Works well all the time.

Cheese Cake Tarts

2 pkgs. (8 oz ea) cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
Vanilla wafers, cupcake liners
Cherry or blueberry pie filling
Heat oven to 350
Blend first 5 ingredients. Line muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1
vanilla wafer in bottom of liner. Fill with cream cheese mixture. Bake
15-20 minutes. Makes 12-18 tarts. When tarts are cool, top with spoonful
of pie filling. May be frozen, then thawed, then add pie filling

I make mini cheesecakes for my catering, and they turn out fine. Measure
you crumb mixture into the cup, press firmly with a smaller glass or
tumbler with a similar shape. As long as you have plenty of butter in your
crumb mix, it will stick to the sides, but you need to press it firmly all
at once. Then before you put in your filling, gently place your pans into
the freezer for 10-15 minutes so they stay in place while filling.

Now just fill and bake. Do not pre=bake the crusts. Plus, the cooktime is
greatly reduced, so watch your product.
