Cheesecake Squares

In June we had a wedding reception at our church to celebrate the start of Michael and Rebecca’s adventure together. These cheese cake squares were the dessert of my choice to bring as they are bit-size, so people can try more than just one dessert and they are easy to decorate at any season. I chose raspberries and small lemon balm leaves this time.

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 3 cups (400g)  graham cracker crumbs
  • a bit less than 1/2 cup softened butter
For the topping
  • 3 blocks cream cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • sugar
  • vanilla
For the decoration
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • raspberries
  • small lemon balm leaves

Preparation

Knead the crumbs and the butter together and press into a 12×12 inch pan lined with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients for the topping and pour over top. Bake at 350˚F for 30 min. Open the oven a bit and let the squares sit in there to cool off slowly. Chill for at least two hours before decorating.
