How to Make Air Fryer Strawberry Cheesecake

First things first! Set out the cream cheese and eggs to warm to your loving touch. We’re aiming for room temp perfection here.

Warm up your air fryer to a cozy 320°F (just like prepping your home for guests).

If DIY is your style, crush those graham crackers and take a moment to revel in the simple joys.

In a bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Add the butter bit by bit, just until the mixture is hugging each other tightly enough to form our crust.

Spritz your ramekins with your go-to cooking spray – we’re keeping things non-stick and easy.

Scoop around ¼ cup of the crumbly goodness into each ramekin. Press down with love using a spoon or measuring cup to create the perfect base for your creamy creation.

Pop the ramekins into the air fryer, and bake until you see a tinge of golden – about 6 sweet minutes.

Once golden and gorgeous, take them out and give them a moment to chill.

Now, for the filling! Mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until it’s as smooth as a jazz tune on a summer’s night.

Introduce the eggs to the mix one by one, stirring in soulfully after each new friend joins the party.

Fill the ramekins with the creamy ensemble, ready for their air fryer debut.

Adjust your air fryer to 310°F and bake for a sublime 10 – 12 minutes. Give them a peek at 10 minutes and then decide if they need another spin for 2 minutes more.

Once they’ve had their time to shine, take them out and give them time to cool down. Every star needs their rest.

Top with your chosen fruit filling – crown them with your favorite flavors and watch them come to life.

Now the best part: share, savor, and indulge in the fruits of your joyful kitchen adventure!

Tips and Serving Suggestions for Air Fryer Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

When it comes to air fryer desserts, mini cheesecakes with strawberries are a delightful treat. Here are some tips and serving suggestions to enhance your mini cheesecake experience.

Let your creativity shine by experimenting with different crust options for your mini cheesecakes.

Consider using crushed granola, shortbread cookies, or chocolate sandwich cookies to add a unique twist to the base.

While strawberries make a perfect topping, feel free to explore other fruits to complement your mini cheesecakes.

Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, peaches, or mango can provide a delightful burst of flavor and a beautiful aesthetic.

For those craving an extra touch of sweetness, try making a homemade berry sauce to drizzle over your mini cheesecakes.

Simply simmer berries, water, lemon juice, and honey until the mixture thickens, creating a luscious sauce that perfectly complements the creamy cheesecake.

In addition to berry sauce, you can also serve your mini strawberry cheesecakes with a dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce for added indulgence.

Storage

Remember to store any leftover mini strawberry cheesecakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days, ensuring they stay fresh for future enjoyment.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (either store-bought or regular graham crackers crushed)
  • ¼ cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 – 3 Tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 6 Tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (1 whole and 1 egg white) at room temperature
  • Your favorite pie filling (either homemade or canned)

Instructions

  1. Lay out the cream cheese at least 1 hour before you are ready to make this dessert. 
  2. Take the eggs out a little bit before you begin. They have to be at room temperature. 
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 320 degrees F. 
  4. If you are making your own crumbs, crush the graham crackers and set them aside. 
  5. In a small bowl, add the crushed graham crackers, white granulated sugar, and melted unsalted butter. Stir together with a spoon. Start with just 1 Tablespoon of butter and drizzle in more as needed to get the mixture wet so it will form into a crust when pressed together. 
  6. Lightly spray the ramekins with your favorite cooking spray. 
  7. Fill the ramekins with the crust. You will use about ¼ cup of the graham cracker mixture in each ramekin (this will depend on the size of your ramekins). Press the mixture into a ramekin with the bottom of the measuring cup, your hands, or a spoon. 
  8. Place the ramekins into the air fryer and bake for 6 minutes or until the crust is light golden brown. 
  9. When they are done, remove them from the air fryer so they can cool. 
  10. Next, in a medium-sized bowl, add the softened cream cheese, white granulated sugar, and pure vanilla extract. 
  11. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the ingredients together until the mixture is creamy and smooth. This is why it is critical to use room-temperature ingredients. If you don’t, the mixture will not be smooth and creamy. 
  12. Add the eggs in, one at a time. Mix thoroughly after each addition. Remember that one egg is only the egg white. 
  13. Add the mixture to each ramekin. 
  14. Place the ramekins into the air fryer basked. Lower the temperature down to 310 degrees and bake for 10 – 12 minutes. 
  15. Check at 10 minutes and if not done, put them back into the air fryer in 2-minute increments. 
  16. When they are done, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool. 
  17. While they are cooling, either make your favorite homemade fruit filling or use a canned one. 
  18. Once they’ve cooled, top them with the filling and serve.  A close up of food.

Notes

They last up to three days in the fridge covered with plastic wrap or foil. They are so good though you probably won’t have any left. 

The crust and ramekins must be completely cooled before adding the cream cheese filling. 

If you are making your own crumbs, place your graham crackers into a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin or measuring cup. 

The cheesecakes are done when they reach an internal temperature of 150 degrees.
