I'm not a huge fan of cheesecakes. My family loves them and i happily make it for them upon request. Cheesecakes are just so easy to make. I usually make them with a graham cracker crust so i was pretty intrigued when I read that this recipe uses a cornmeal crust. Instead of making a huge 9" cheesecake, I cut the recipe in half and made minis in my cupcake pan. Half of the crust recipe is good enough for 12 minis. Half of the cheesecake recipe yields a lot more than 12 -- maybe 14 or 15. I just spooned all the batter into the 12 cups. I didnt go with any fruit topping since my family likes their cheesecakes plain. Plus, i totally forgot to pick up blueberries when i was at the market. I just sprinkled some of the lemon zest on top before popping the pan into the oven.
VERDICT: No more graham cracker crusts! The cornmeal crust is nice n crunchy. I love it! The cheese part is great too, with the addition of marscapone and the nice lemony flavor. Lemon or plain -- this is a winner with my family.
