Quick, easy, and delicious. These little desserts combine the crisp texture of wafers with the soft, creamy texture of ricotta and chocolate. The dab of jam adds a tiny surge of sweetness. I used whole-milk ricotta, and I stored the ricotta-chocolate topping and the jam separately in the fridge. I labeled the topping container with instructions to measure out 12 grams of topping per chocolate wafer. My husband and I both love these cookies (though I wouldn't call them cheesecake).

Simply perfect! These are so delicious and easy to make. I served them on New Year's Eve, and everyone enjoyed them very much. I will definitely make them for future get-togethers. Pros: Quick, delicious, easy Cons: I could eat 100. :(

Loved these! So quick & simple to make, but great flavor. Difficult to eat just one, though!

Delicious! I made mini muffin graham cracker shells and used the cheesecake as the filling.
