Preheat oven to 350oF (180oC).

In a bowl, mix ingredients for the crust. Divide evenly into mini-muffin moulds, and press down to cover bottoms. Use paper mini-muffin cups to make unmoulding easier.

In a large bowl, beat the Cream cheese while adding sugar and flour, until a smooth consistency is reached.

Add sour cream and vanilla. Mix well.

Incorporate eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Pour into moulds and bake in the centre of the oven about 20 minutes or until cakes are firm to the touch. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving with your favourite topping.

Use a variety of garnishes according to children’s tastes: jams and/or marmalades, caramel (dulce de leche), chocolate sauce or spread, etc. On a serving tray, place cakes decorated with colourful toppings (peach, strawberry and blueberry jams, etc.).
