These no-bake mini cheesecakes are easy to prepare and are inspired by Cap’s own iconic shield. Topped with sweet cherry jam, blueberries and star sprinkles, these tiny treats are an all-American dessert that’s sure to please any fan.
1 cup vanilla wafer-style cookies, crushed fine
2 tablespoons butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
White star sprinkles
Prep a muffin tin with liners.
In a bowl, stir together the Nilla Wafer crumbs and the butter. Press into the bottom of the muffin tin liners.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, stir together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt.
Add the whipping cream and stir together until combined and smooth.
Pour the filling into the liners on top of the crumb mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, approximately four to six hours.
Once set, spoon the cherry jam in a circle on top of the filling to form the shield. Add blueberries in the center of each cheesecake, and a white star sprinkle to finish and serve.
