Mini Cheesecake

Over the weekend, I got myself 2 muffin size for my bigger oven ,a mini (4cm base x 2.5cm height) and a standard size (5cm base x 3cm height). The mini was bought at Mr DIY @ RM16 and the standard size from AeonBig @ RM26.
Actually i bought the standard tin size first, then later the same day saw the smaller tin size at MrDIY ..Ishh Issh..
I love my cheesecake rich, creamy and melt in your mouth. Most cheesecake recipe every 250g cream cheese will call for 1 egg with 1/4 cup of liquid (yogurt/ sour cream / whipping cream) Feel free to substitute which ever your preference.
