Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Wanting to celebrate National Cheesecake Day, (which is tomorrow, Sunday the 30th by the way) but find yourself with very little time, baking knowledge or motivation?

Fear not for today, along with some great Aldi Baking products, I am going to help you create tasty morsels of delight, in plenty of time for National Cheesecake Day*. Sure what more could you want?

*Imagine my telephone voice... Can you tell I have always wanted my own baking show?! Haha!

These mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake are genuinely simple and really delicious! A ready made cookie dough, chopped up and squashed into the bottom of some cupcake liners form the base. A creamy mix of 5.. FIVE folks.. that's one hands worth of ingredients makes the cheesecake mixture, forms the baked filling with some extra chocolate chips thrown in for good measure!

This cheats bake, easy make is perfect for those with limited baking experience or for those of you who want something nice to have, but want as little effort as possible! Aldi and I have got you both covered.

Cheesecake Mixture

400g cream cheese, softened
200g caster sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
100g chocolate chips


1 packet Cookie Dough, chopped and shaped into 12 circles

Whipped Cream Topping

250ml double cream
2 tbsp icing sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Putting it together...

Preheat oven to 180C/350F or Gas mark 4.  
Line a 12 hole cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
Press a circle of cookie dough into the bottom of each cavity.

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and the sugar together.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla until well combined. Stir in miniature chocolate chips.
Pour cream cheese mixture into each cupcake liner about  ¾ of the way full.

Bake for 20 minutes, then turn off oven and leave the door slightly open to allow the cheesecakes to cool for a further 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool completely on wire rack before removing from pan. They may dip in the centre during cooling.

Whisk together sugar and the double cream until stiff peaks form.

Top cheesecakes with whipped cream and serve.
