Did you know that you can use biscuits to bake a delicious cheesecake base? Mind blown, right! Most people use crackers, but biscuits are a delicious alternative, especially these cranberry and white chocolate ones. You can see the cranberry pieces in the biscuits.
How To Make White Chocolate Cranberry Mini Cheesecake
To turn them into a delicious base for your cheesecake, simply heat the oven to 325F. Bake them in individual mini cheesecake pans for 5-minutes, and then using the end of a rolling pin, press them into the base of the pan.
Once you’ve made your cheesecake filling you can pour that right over the top and bake like normal. And just look at the cranberry pieces you can still see in the base.
The biscuit holds together beautifully with the cheesecake on top, and is light and crumbly when you bite into it.
Top your mini cheesecake with white chocolate curls and confectioner’s sugar and you have a delicious dessert.
