I want to bake a cheesecake in tiny pans, they hold about 1 ounce. The instructions on the recipe I am using is for a 8x3" round pan. You bake it at 350 for 1 hour 15 min. How long and at what temp should I bake it in the mini pans? TIA

I have a pan that holds mini cheesecakes, and the pan has "push-up" bottoms. I'm not sure exactly how much they hold, but I can tell you that I bake them until the edges are golden. They "puff" up and then will "fall" back down. That's when they are done. AND, let them sit in the pan for a little while, so they firm up and slide out easier. I went through several "messy" batches before I finally got the hang of it. But they are precious and everyone seems to love them! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

I would drop it to 325 and start checking around 20 minutes (or 15 if they are very small). It's really impossible for me to give you a definitive answer, since I don't know how your oven runs, etc. Even when baking the full size cheesecake the time in the recipe should only be a guide. Cheescake should be mostly set, but slightly jiggly in the center. If the cheesecakes are fully set when you take them out of the oven, they're overdone.

I just did some mini cheesecakes for the cupcake bouquet I did last week...I basically just filled the cup up turned the heat to about 325 and watched closely. When I saw they were getting golden I used a toothpick to see they were done.
