This cheesecake was really easy to throw together and didn't even need a water bath! I made 1/4 of the recipe and used my new Cuisinart Elite Collection 4-Cup Chopper/Grinder. I got this as part of the swag bag at BlogHerFood (yes, the swag was awesome!). It is easy to use and perfect for just a little hummus or cream cheese. Luckily, it comes with a little spatula and that made scraping down the sides easier.

Looks so delicious! For 1/4 of the recipe, what size baking pan did you use?

What a perfect little cheesecake - and what great fun to have a new gadget! Looks like it fit the bill for the portioned-down recipe!

Wow, that must have been some goodie bag. I have a small chopper/grinder but I'm thinking about upgrading to something bigger so I can make and freeze stuff.

This cheesecake looks delicious. I hope you have a happy new year!

It looks wonderful! I loved how creamy it was. I added a ganache on the top to cover up a mess I made with graham crackers LOL

I made some tiny ones too! Is there anything cuter than a mini-springform pan?

Everything about your cheesecake looks fantastic. But I do miss that water bath! ;)

Karen, I use the Lowel Ego lights with their package of large construction paper backgrounds for these indoor, nighttime shots. The package is here on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GWKYO4/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0009K50RO&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0V87KHVNFZXD1KRRWNMX

Judy, for 1/4 of the recipe, I used a 4 1/2" diameter mini springform pan. I think I got them at Crate & Barrel...or I've seen them at C&B. :) - mary
