Mini Berry Cheesecake Hearts

Here's a cute little Valentines Day cheesecake recipe for you to try this weekend. Whilst spring cleaning my kitchen cupboards on Sunday I stumbled upon some foil heart baking cases in the cupboard that were crying out to be used in a heart shaped Valentines bake.....and who doesn't love a baked cheesecake, especially when they look so pretty?

If you haven't got any heart shape cases - don't panic. Muffin cases (placed in a muffin tin) work just fine too and once unpeeled leave a lovely serrated edge to the cheesecakes. The ingredient amounts stated below make 12 of my heart shaped cheesecakes (my foil heart cases are about 6cm diameter) but if you are using the muffin cases it makes about 18. That might sound a lot but they keep in the fridge for about a week and you can also freeze them so you are never too far away from a yummy baked berry cheesecake.

Why not treat your loved ones to this deliciously rich and creamy dessert? They will love you forever x
