White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes

If you’re not a yogurt fan, I’m sorry in advance.

I seem to be a yogurt-baking kick right now. And since everything is coming out wonderfully, I’m okay with it. Just be prepared for a few more yogurt recipes this week. And maybe next week, too.

Until last week, I had never made mini cheesecakes. Now that I have, I’m not sure why I waited this long!

They were incredibly easy to make, took less time to bake than a regular cheesecake, and, if a few cracked, I could just top those with cherries and leave the pretty ones to shine on their own.

Even if you’re not a big fan of yogurt by itself, you’ll be happy you used it in these mini cheesecakes. The tanginess from the cream cheese balances out the sweet yogurt, and the batter bakes perfectly on top of the buttery vanilla wafer.

Plus, when you open the oven door to get these cheesecakes out to cool, your kitchen will have the tiniest scent of raspberries and cream.

White Chocolate Raspberry. Cream Cheese. Vanilla Wafer. You can’t go wrong!

White Chocolate Raspberry Mini Cheesecakes

Makes 24 mini (if using a mini muffin tin) or 12 (if using a regular muffin tin)

  • 24 vanilla wafers
  • 1 8 oz. low fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 6 oz. container Stonyfield White Chocolate Raspberry yogurt (I used the whole milk variety)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • cherry pie filling for topping, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until combined.
  3. Beat in the yogurt, egg, and vanilla.
  4. Place paper liners in mini muffin tin (you could also use a regular muffin tin, but the vanilla wafer will be a bit smaller than the liner – they will still bake up fine!)
  5. Put one vanilla wafer in the bottom of each liner.
  6. Pour 2-3 spoonfulls of batter over each vanilla wafer, filling the liner up about 2/3 of the way.
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes or until set.
  8. Cool.

  8. I’m such a sucker for mini-cheesecakes! Though it’s hard to eat just one :)

  9. Brandi, these look delicious. I am actually experimenting with eating dairy again and have been eating yogurt so it is OK by me :D

  10. I never thought to make cheesecakes in a muffin tin! I’m not sure why. These look great!

  11. Yum! Those look incredible! I love love the addition of cherries. I’ve been using a lot of yogurt in my baking lately too. It adds great flavor & moisture. Hope you’re doing well this morning :)

  12. My mom makes great mini cheesecakes. I love them! Those look so great!

  13. What a wonderful creation! These look delish.

    And speaking of yogurt… I’m doing a Chobani giveaway this week at my site if you want to check it out! :)

  14. I’m loving that these are healthier with the yogurt! And it seems like they still taste amazing, as cheesecake should. My hips thank you.

  15. I’ve never tried making cheesecake with yogurt. Such a great idea!

  16. OMG…YOUR NEW DESIGN {!!!}

  17. Love the idea of using the white chocolate raspberry yogurt! I may have to try this one out too.

  18. I love that these are made with yogurt so they’re healthier. They look fantastic!

  19. gosh, brandi, these look awesome AND easy! I’m already a fan. ;)

    so glad I stumbled upon your bloggity blog!

  20. What a delicious treat! As much as I adore cheesecake, I don’t make it all the time because a) it is too rich, and b) since it is so rich, the majority of the cheesecake goes to waste. If they are portioned smaller and made a little lighter like this, my dilemma is solved. :)

  21. These look so YUMMY! Not too bad calorie wise, either… Have you tried any other topping, like preserves?

  22. You had me at White Chocolate Raspberry! They look divine. How do you stop yourself from eating 10 at once? Or do you ;).

  23. I adore cherry pie filling on cheesecake, takes me back to my childhood. Love this recipe!

  24. love yogurt. love cheesecake. loving this combo!! :)

  25. I’ve never made cheesecake (and I’m ashamed to say so!) These cheesecakes look 1) awesome and 2) do-able. Maybe I should give them a shot! :)
