Tips and Suggestions
- If you’re okay with shorter cheesecakes, you could probably split
the batter over 18 tins instead of 16, though you’ll need two more
- If you do fill the empty cups with water, remove the cheesecakes
before refrigerating, and set them on a cloth towel on a plate, as
moisture will accumulate on the bottoms if left in the pan.
- Consider mixing in dried fruit, like dried cranberries.
- Try piping strawberry jelly through a plastic bag to decorate the
cheesecakes prior to baking.
