  2. Add all the ingredients (except toppings) to a bowl and mix with a hand mixer until smooth and fluffy.
  3. Pour the mixture into glass jars or other small, heat-resistant portion molds.
  4. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Shake gently to see if they have stabilized.
  5. Let them cool. Put them in the refrigerator for a few hours until they are completely cold.
  6. Mix the crème fraîche with vanilla and sweetener. Add a spoonful of the mixture on top of each mini cheesecake. Garnish with raspberries, poppy seeds and a sprig of fresh mint.

Tip!

You can prepare this dessert a day ahead. Garnish with berries, poppy seeds and mint just before serving.

Make it even creamier!

After you fill the jars, put them in a deep baking dish. Fill the dish with water so the water covers at least half the jars' height, and then put in the oven. The extra-creamy results are definitely worth the little extra trouble!
