Answers to Common Questions Asked About This Recipe

Which tools are helpful for making this recipe? 

Deep mixing bowl – I prefer mixing bowls that have a silicone handle grip and also a silicone bottom. The silicone makes it easier to hold onto the bowl and also keeps it in place better on the counter as you’re working. I also like how this set nests together for storage.

Cookie dough scoop – here’s the little scoop that I use for filling my phyllo shells, making it so easy to do! I like having scoops in all sizes for kitchen tasks – super handy.

Silicone Spatula Spoons – Of all the tools in my kitchen, silicone spatula spoons are what I use the most. They make stirring and sautéing a breeze and I love all the pretty silicone colors available. Silicone spatula spoons are completely heat-proof so they won’t melt, even when used over high temperatures. I like to have different sizes on hand for different kitchen tasks – soooo handy!

Can I cut this recipe in half since it makes so many cheesecake bites?

Absolutely! Also, keep in mind that you can make a full batch of the filling and then just make the the cheesecake bites as you need them.

Can I make cheesecake bites ahead of time?

The phyllo shells will soften from the filling as they sit, so it’s best to make the cheesecake bites just as you’re ready to eat or serve them.

How can I make this a low-fat dessert?

Just substitute one-third-less fat cream cheese and low fat whipped topping.
