For some reason, everything seems to taste better when it’s tiny, especially when it comes to desserts. Maybe it’s the fact that every delicious flavor is condensed down into a perfectly personal treat. As a lover of sweets, I adore the idea of mini cheesecakes. They are a little less difficult to make than traditional ones and are even more perfect for serving at parties. These are a few of my favorite recipes.
