Cheesecake in a Cup

الوصفه بالعربي

Dessert can never be this simple yet so heavenly! Every time I made this, I received so many compliments on the way it looks and how delicious it tasted – after any meal. The trick is to make it for a party of 8 to 10 max, so its not too tiring for you and is still cozy enough to enjoy the cups.


  • 8 shortbread cookies (Digestives, or butter cookies) - بسكويت الزبدة
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder - قرفة
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese (OR Mascarpone) - جبن كريمى
  • ½ cup cream - قشطة
  • 1 lime (for the juice) - ليمون بلدي
  • 2 tablespoon powdered Sugar - سكر بودرة
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract - خلاصة الفانيليا
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest - قشر الليمون
  • ½ kg strawberries (OR any other preferred berries) - فراولة

Step by step

  1. Cut the strawberries in small bite size, mix them with 1 tbsp icing sugar and lime zest and keep it in the fridge until serving.
  2. Crush the cookies in a plastic bag or in your blender and mix in the cinnamon.
  3. Mix the cheese and cream in a blender and add the rest of the icing sugar, lime juice and vanilla extract.
  4. Now all you need is to assemble the dessert – just before serving. Choose a nice glass or and open cup – divide your crushed cookies on the 4 glasses and lay them neatly on the bottom, add the cream cheese mix then top it with the glazed strawberries – make sure you drizzle the strawberry syrup remains on top.
