Mini Lemon Blueberry Cheesecakes Recipe

  • Author: Sweet Loren’s
  • Prep Time: 45 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 Minutes
  • Total Time: 1 Hour
  • Yield: 4 Mini Cheesecakes 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Diet: Gluten Free


  • 1 package Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (dairy free or dairy works well)
  • 1/3 cup + 1/2 cup sugar or alternative sweetener of choice
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, I used a dairy free
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest, divided
  • Juice of 2 lemons, divided
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar or alternative sweetener of choice
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder


  1.  Let Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough come to room temperature so it becomes soft to touch. Grease 4 mini tart pans. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2.  As soon as the dough is soft, press 2 to 2 ½ cookie dough portions along the bottom and sides of a mini tart pan. Repeat this process until all the tart pans are lined with cookie dough. Make sure there are no gaps in the dough.
  3.  Place the mini tarts on a large baking pan and transfer to the fridge or freezer for 25 minutes to set.
  4.  Bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden. Cool completely before adding filling.
  5.  Meanwhile, prepare the cheesecake filling by combining the cream cheese, ⅓ cup sugar, heavy cream, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, and juice of 1 lemon. Mix on medium-high speed until fluffy and smooth.
  6.  Pour the filling into the cooled pie crusts and set in the refrigerator to chill.
  7.  To make the blueberry topping, combine the blueberries, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, juice of 1 lemon, water and arrowroot starch in a medium pot. Stir and cook over medium heat, about 5-8 minutes, until thickened. Allow to cool completely before topping the mini cheesecakes.
  8.  Allow assembled cheesecakes to set in the fridge at least 3 hours before serving. Enjoy!
