Mini Gingerbread Cheesecakes with Candied Walnuts are the perfect easy yet impressive bite-sized treat for any holiday party!

YUM!! This is the perfect festive recipe for easy entertaining! Such a crowd pleaser!

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Just like gingerbread, but better with the added dose of flavor provided by the cream cheese and Speculoos cookie crust!
Texture: The cream and smooth cheesecake filling is basically sandwiched by a crunchy buttery crust, and extra crunchy candied walnuts.
Ease: Way quicker and easier than making a full-sized cheesecake. The candied walnuts on top are super simple too!
Pros: Fun festive recipe that’s perfect for any holiday party. You can easily double the recipe to serve a bigger group.
Cons: None!!
Would I make this again? Absolutely. I might drizzle with salted caramel next time!

    Thank you SOOO much for explaining how to mix cheesecake!! I have a Junior’s cheesecake recipe book that I Love, but after the last one I made turned out lumpy (I was afraid of *overmixing* BC I didn’t understand the why), I’ve been hesitant to try again. Now I can make any cheesecake dessert with confidence that it will turn out smooth and creamy with no lumps!! This recipe is definitely on my to-do list this holiday season!
