Last weekend while making some treats to take to a friend’s daughter’s graduation party, I searched Hoosier Homemade for the Mini Cheesecake recipe that I’ve made over the years, and quickly realized that I never shared it.

With Fourth of July right around the corner, I thought you might enjoy these Easy Berry Mini Cheesecakes to take to your Celebration!

The Mini Cheesecakes are simple, easy and can be topped with any fresh fruit, canned pie filling, or even chocolate. To make them festive, I added some whipping cream, a sliced strawberry and a couple blueberries.

Love cheesecake? I bet you will LOVE these recipes!
