These little mini mason jars filled to the brim with Strawberry Cheesecake are majorly delish!


Did you see my Easter Brunch spread yesterday? Epic to say the least, am I right? What better way to end Easter Brunch than with a sweet little treat topping with sugar soaked strawberries!! These are super easy to make and require only about a dozen mini mason jars!! They are the perfect individual treat for Easter or any kind of celebration where desserts are needed - so basically everything!! 🙂

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs 16 whole graham crackers, ground
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted
  • 4 8-ounce packages of Philadelphia cream cheese room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract I used ¼ teaspoon vanilla paste
  • zest of 1 lemon


  • 2 pints of fresh strawberries quartered
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup heavy cream whipped


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Spray 12 (8-ounce) small mason jars with non-stick cooking spray, making sure to spray the bottoms so the crust doesn't stick. Blend the graham cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons of sugar and melted butter in a bowl. Place about 2 tablespoon of the crumbs into each mason jar and press down to make the crust.
  • In a large mixer bowl, mix the room temperature cream cheese with the ¾ cup of sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well. Add the sour cream, vanilla and lemon zest and mix until well incorporated. Fill each mason jar with about ½ cup of the filling, leaving room at the top for your topping.
  • Place the jars in a large roasting pan. Fill the pan with hot water halfway up the mason jars. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove jars with tongs and place on a wire rack to cool.

For the topping:

  • Sprinkle the sugar on top of the strawberries and let sit for 30 minutes until a syrup forms. Arrange strawberries on top of each cheesecake. Refrigerate cheesecakes until ready to serve and dollop with whipped cream on top.


I highly recommend using full-fat cream cheese for the best texture. However, you may use reduced fat for half of it if desired.

  1. It looks like your jars are the 4 oz size, however, your recipe calls for an 8 oz jar.
    So this recipe fills 12 eight oz jars?
    So then for 4 oz convert to 24 jars?

    Just want to confirm your jar size.


  2. 5 stars
    Made this recipe for the first time and I love it. It’s easy and I have everything on hand. I used 4 ounce jars instead of the 8 ounce. I put 1 side of an Oreo cookie into the bottom. Fit perfectly. This will be my go to recipe. Thank You

  3. where did you get your jars?? i cant find any like them 🙁 if you bought online, do you have a link?

    1. I got them at Smart+Final here in LA - they are just wide mouth mason jars (8 ounces)

  4. Good evening , it’s 10:30 pm on the east cast . I have a question for you , when I make them can I put the strawberries on top and keep them in the refrigerator and for how long .
    Thank you

    1. it's correct as printed! this makes 12 mason jars but you can easily 1/2 the recipe if you prefer

  5. Hi Gaby! I’m planning to make these on Sunday. Can I prep them Saturday morning or will the graham crackers get soggy? Thanks!

  6. Hi, I would love to make these, but use a sweet potato cheesecake filling. Can I replace the filling with my sweet potato cheesecake recipe, and bake at same time? I've never made jars before but would love to try!

  7. I made these for a homecoming dance and they were beautiful and delicious! I had to bake them for 40 minutes (my altitude may have affected the baking time). Great recipe, I'll be keeping this recipe for future events!

  8. I made these for a party tonight and they were so delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and got perfect results. Thanks for a great recipe!
