These Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups are a delicious and festive Christmas cookie recipe that can also be enjoyed all year long!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin tin with mini cupcake liners.
Mix strawberries and sugar together. Set aside until ready to garnish.
In a mixing bowl, add crust ingredients. Using a pastry cutter, two forks, or your fingers, mix butter into the crumbs until well distributed.
Add 1 scant teaspoon of crumb mixture to each muffin tin well. Press down with fingers to line the bottom. Repeat with all wells.
In a mixing bowl or a stand mixer, add your cheesecake ingredients. Mix for 3-4 minutes, or until well mixed and the sugar is no longer visible. Add 1 tablespoon of the mixture to each muffin tin.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until set. Do not let brown or overbake!
Let sit until cool and add topping.
Refrigerate until serving.
