Preparing the Cheesecake Mixture

To make the cheesecake mixture, you will need to start with room temperature cream cheese. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese on low-medium speed until smooth. Next, add in sugar, lemon juice and zest. Continue to mix until well combined, scraping the sides of the bowl to ensure the mixture has uniform in texture.  Once smooth, fold in ricotta cheese until well combined.

Assembling the Cheesecake Bites

To assemble the cheesecake bites, first, prepare a mini muffin tin by lining it with paper liners. Press a spoonful of crust mixture into the bottom of each cup.  Scoop the cheesecake mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round tip or use a small ice cream scoop or spoon to fill each liner evenly with the mixture.
Use the back of a wet spoon to smooth the tops and create a small indent for the jam topping. 


Next, place the muffin tin in the refrigerator for at least an hour to firm up the cheesecake bites.  After the cheesecake bites have chilled, remove them from the muffin tin and place them on a serving platter. To finish, simply spoon a dollop of the jelly onto each cheesecake bite and if desired top with a sprig of thyme or mint leaf.


Whether you're looking to impress guests at a spring brunch or just satisfy your sweet tooth, these cheesecake bites are the perfect solution.. So go ahead, give them a try and see for yourself why they're such a popular dessert choice. As the saying goes, "life is uncertain, eat dessert first!"
