Ginger-Kiwi Mini Cheesecakes

Recipe adapted from Philadelphia 3-Step Mini Cheesecakes

16 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
12 ginger snaps (I used Nabisco’s; they’re quite crunchy and held up well to the filling’s moisture.)
2 tsp powdered ginger
3 kiwi fruit

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare 12 cupcake liners. Place one ginger snap in the bottom of each.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and ginger until well blended. Add eggs and mix until blended.

Divide mixture evenly between cupcake liners; each will be about 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 minutes, then refrigerate for 3 hours.

Just before serving, peel, core, and dice kiwi fruit. Top each cheesecake with a spoonful of kiwi and serve promptly.

NOTE: I had planned to make candied ginger to sprinkle atop the kiwi, but foolishly found myself gingerless. In the end, I don’t think the cakes needed it; they already have a nice ginger kick and I wouldn’t want to overpower the kiwi. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try it on one next time.
