It was so lovely seeing you at Stephanie's last night, and your cheesecakes were delicious!


ummmm, WOW!!! I LOOOOVE this Amanda!!

I can't wait to make some!! and fabulous pictures, as always!

Michelle Kent

Oh be still my heart..I do love cheesecake.thanks


I've always loved these... so sweet! I haven't tried a no bake version but will deffinitely look into that. I normally use my New York style cheesecake recipe with a sugar cookie crust and then just bake the jars in a water bath until almost set and let cool in the oven before refrigerating them. They come out really creamy and always get lots of "Ooohs" and "Ahhhs" when they are put out. I'm loving the one you posted with the heath chips... think I will be doing that one next! ;)

Becky @ Becky Bakes

I've been seeing these around too but yours look particularly scrumptious! No-bake is a great idea. I may have to acquire some jars soon!


Great idea! I'm hungry for cheesecake now, thanks :P. Have a great Mother's Day!

Jamie | My Baking Addiction

I am so loving everything in jars these days! Your cheesecakes are gorgeous!

At Anna's kitchen table

What a great idea! They're so cute!


Why have I never heard of these before? Those are super cute Amanda, and they look tasty too! I may have to try these.


This is just perfect for a function we will be going to. Could you please tell me where you got those jars?


Yes, where did you find the jars? Those are SO cute!

Karin van D.

That looks delicious and adorable at the same time. Perfect combination!


Great idea to put a cheescake in a jar! I always make no bake cheescake (but without the vanilla flavor, and 3 Tb of lemon juice) with homemade raspberry filling. It's a hit in my family...
Happy mother's day!!

Fallon Keller

This is a great idea! =] So cute too. I wonder where I could find jars like that?

Nancy @SensitivePantry

I love this!! I bet everyone went wild over them. Such a fun idea for a get together with friends or a family picnic.


These are my kind of dessert - I'll take one of each, please :) Happy mother's day!

These look great! I LOVE jars. Great flavor combos, I'm sure everyone loved them!

Bina (Lovelyxbones from LJ)

OMG! SO SO SO CUTE and simple!!! *dies* I am SO saving this to my favorites.

I love when simple things look so fancy and beautiful. You did it again!


Each of these cheesecakes in a jar sound awesome. Hope you have an amazing Mother's Day my friend. Eat a cheesecake in a jar for me OK??!! xo

Ana Powell

So perfect.
I just posted "Cake in jar"
Awesome clicks ♥



Tammy aka @Tammy_Skipper

Yum! What a great dessert idea!


We've made pie in a jar and this was our next mission. It's exciting to see someone else make it first so that we know what it will (is supposed to) turn out like!


We made a bunch of "Key Lime Pie's in a jar" last night - they are SO cute (and yummy). Ran out of them all to fast at our little get together today. The cheesecakes look great!

So, I'll ask you again....WHEN are you coming to Texas?!?!

Renee (kudos kitchen)

Love, love, love!!! So sweet and so darn cute!!!!!


Where did you find jars this size/shape? I haven't seen these near the regular Mason jars at the grocery store.

Joanna @ Southern Daisy

Those look divine!!!! And those jars are so cute!


Every time I make cheesecake I forget the sugar but when I try this I wont for get it. I promise.
Yet another great idea, I think I'm going to have to hold a baking party so as to use more of your recipes.

Jennifer Nixon

These are to die for!! Can't wait to make me some!!

Becky Robertson

Seriously...I've never seen these (or any of the other mentioned things) in jars before!!! I'm LOVING this idea and really love the idea of the no-bake version. My MIL buys stuff that all you have to do is pour into a crust....at least with these recipes I'll feel like I'm actually making something from scratch! ;)

Love, love, love these!!!!


This is getting pretty serious Amanda... may have to start doing my annual on a monthly basis with all these sweet sweet calories! Thanks for sharing this 'kewl' creation!

Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen

I have seen them but none so cute! Seriously love those pudgy little jars!!


Awesome! And the jars make it SUPER CUTE! Like everyone else, need a clue on where you got the JARS! Thanks!


I agree awesome!!! I too would like to know where you purchased your jars... Thanks for sharing!


Oh my goodness what an idea! I am so doing these to take to uni (in fact any kind of cake/pudding in a jar!) and whip out in mid afternoon :) thank you for sharing x


I am such a big cheesecake fan and absolutely adore this idea. Never thought of it myself and this is the first time I'm seeing it. Will be stealing this ;)

Lovely post and very nice pictures!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

I need to get on this trend of making things in jars, it's such a cute presentation. I can't believe you made seven different flavors!


These look absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to wow guests with this one.

Rachel @ Baked by Rachel

Love this idea! Thank you for sharing. They're all so cute and perfect for giving. Where did you find the jars? They're not your average mason jar!

the urban baker

I love food in jars and this cheesecake is no exception! Happy Mom's Day, Amanda - I hope your family spoils you!

Rowaida Flayhan

Love love it looks delcious and a wonderful idea as always you are amazing. Happy Mother's Day Amanda. Blessings

Miri Leigh

These are adorable and look delicious! Thanks for posting!


Ive made these before but i did a bake cheesecake. I didn't run into any issues with the glass being heated but maybe it you frequently were to bake the same jars you would? It was a bit of a risk to make but they were great simple gifts :)


I love everything I've seen and read on these jar desserts and can hardly wait to try and do some myself. Your cheesecakes (so many varieties!) look delicious. Happy Mother's Day Amanda.


I've made something similar to this before but with cream cheese, greek yogurt, and powdered sugar. Yum!

Lauren @ Crave. Indulge. Satisfy.

Yummy! All the flavor combinations sound delicious! Hope you had a wonderful mother's day!

Leah @ minne{BAKER}

These look so good! I love cheesecake and will definitely be trying out this no-bake recipe :-)

I'm a fairly new reader of your blog and love all the great ideas! Can't wait to try a surprise-inside cake. I just used one of your springtime birthday cakes as inspiration for a Mother's Day cake this weekend. Here's my blog about it (with a link back to your blog): http://minnebaker.blogspot.com/2011/05/mothers-day-cake.html


Here is one to try...I have used this for no bake cheesecake:

8oz cool whip
8oz cream cheese
and then flavoring of any type or a powdered sweet mix like a package of Tastefully Simple's key lime cheeseball mix or strawberry cheeseball mix. I am sure there are other brands of sweet mixes? Or you could maybe used flavored cream cheese. Put on top of a graham cracker crust, refrigerate and done...talk about easy peasy. 4 ingredients total and yummy....sometimes I add a little fresh fruit on top.

Erin Lian

These look amazing!! I can't wait to try making them! Especially the oreo cookie one. I <3 anything in jars :D
