    I don't know if I did something wrong but the cheescake drastically deflated after baking and the texture of the cheese cake is poor. The taste of the cheesecake is hidden by the stronger gram cracker base and even the strawberries overpowers any taste that the cheesecake has.

    The only thing is that the quantities are insufficient. If I make it again I would double both not just the base.

    These were okay but nothing special. I doubled the crust like other comments mentioned and I don’t think it really added anything. The crust layer was almost as thick as the actual cheesecake.

    I definitely agree with those saying to double the crust. I think the yummiest part of cheesecake is the crust, and even if you don't use all of it, it's fine to have a little extra crumble to snack on ;)

    I made these in a pinch for my co-workers birthday and they were a hit! I was low on some ingredients so I altered it. I essentially doubled the crust, which gave a solid, delicious foundation. I used strawberry cream cheese spread and vanilla yogurt since I was out of cream cheese and sour cream. I topped them off with homemade strawberry compote, which made them feel super fancy and taste very rich. I will 100% be making these again!

    The kids helped. We made a mango & peach sauce to go on top. They were delicious and a great activity to make with the kids. Replaced sour cream with Greek yogurt.

    When they cooled the tops sank in, leaving them quite flat on the middle and raised towards the edges. I guess my oventemperature was wrong because I had to add a lot of time to the timer. The taste was excellent. I am going to try this recipe again because if the delicious taste and quick and easy making.

    I used regular sized muffin tins filled 2/3-3/4 of the way up and made 10 nice size cheese cupcakes. A few cracked, probably because not cooked in a water bath. They puffed up but after 25 min without golden tops,I upped the oven to 400 for a couple of minutes. Sadly, they deflated as I got them out of the oven. Still way faster than full size cheesecakes and the cooling time was shorter too! They were good as well.
