Instructions

Graham cracker crust

  • Combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and cinnamon in a medium size bowl and mix well. Press 21/2 tablespoons into the bottom of 12 8-ounce mason jars.
  • Place jars in a 9x13 inch cake pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven to cool slightly while preparing the batter.

  • Beat cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until very fluffy. Add condensed milk, sour cream and vanilla. Beat for 1 minute on medium speed. Scrape sides of bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well and scraping bowl after each addition. Beat on high for two more minutes.
  • Divide batter among prepared jars, about 1/2 cup in each jar and return jars to the 9x13-inch cake pan. Add enough water to pan to fill the pan 3/4 full. Bake at 350˚F for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow jars to cool to room temperature in pan.
