Has anyone ever used the Cordon rose Cheesecake recipe to make mini-cheesecakes?  I am wondering how long to bake them?  I’m guessing the time will be less than for a regular cheesecake.  Help?

I’ve never done that, but it sure would be handy to know.

Bake 25 to 35 minutes. An instant read thermometer should register 160?F/70?C.,when the pan is moved the batter will jiggle like jelly, and the top will be set and bounce back when pressed lightly. (This is at 350F and take it out when done as opposed to leaving it in with the oven door closed. i still use a water bath though.

Rose, that Cordon Rose Cheesecake recipe is THE best cheesecake!  Years and years ago, someone gave my mother a recipe for a 10 inch cheesecake, and we have made none other cheesecake ever since.  When I bought your Cake Bible, the first thing I did was look at your cheesecake recipe to compare and see it I might like to try it.  Well, lo and behold, my 10 inch recipe is a scaled up version of your Cordon Rose Cheesecake!  Either size, I could eat that cheesecake for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is soooooo yummy!  smile

Now another question on how to make mini cheesecakes - how big are the pans used for the directions you gave?  I have all sizes, from the little 3 inch-ers, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 inch cheesecake pans. I also have the really mini cheesecake pan that King Arthur Flour has in their catalog - makes 12 that are about 2 inches (or less) around.

Wonder if those pretty heart-shaped silicone molds will work?  I think it will release more easily.  Still need to use water-bath?

ELICIA, Yes Elicia when baking a cheesecake it is wise to employ The “BAIN MARIE” (Water Bath) technique.
  Elicia, welcome to the bakers forum. I know you will enjoy it. Have a nice day.
