Instructions

Mini Cheesecakes Preparation

Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C).

Lightly spray a mini cheesecake pan with cooking spray or line a standard muffin pan with foil liners or double paper liners. Place a vanilla wafer into each pan or cup.

In a large bowl, with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, flour, rum, and vanilla until well blended. Beat in the eggs until light and fluffy. Divide mixture between the muffin cups. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until cheesecakes feel firm in the center. Do not overbake. Remove from pan when cool. Chill.

Fruit Topping Preparation

As cheesecakes chill, prepare and clean the berries or fruits. Put sugar and water into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool until warm.

Just before serving, top with your choice of berries or fruit and drizzle with the warm light syrup.
