4 Viennese cookies

16 ounces softened cream cheese

12 teaspoons jam of choice (blueberry, blackberry, etc)

1 tablespoon melted butter

2 eggs

1/3 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Tip: Opt for a thicker fruit preserve for the jam.


Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Line a muffin pan with foil liners.

Process cookies and melted butter in a food processor until crumbly. Press into the muffin pan to form a base.

In a bowl, mix softened cream cheese, eggs, honey, lemon juice, and vanilla extract until smooth.

Distribute the cream cheese mixture evenly over the bases in the muffin cups.

Top each with a teaspoon of jam, creating a swirl effect with a toothpick if desired.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until set. Let cool in the pan briefly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Chill the cheesecake bites in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving. Relish these exquisite Viennese Cheesecake Bites, a delicious and satisfying treat!
