These mini cherry cheesecake cookies by food blog My Baking Addition offer a portion-controlled version of the popular dish in a more bite-size friendly format. The dish still encapsulates all the flavorful and sweet elements of the original, but in a much smaller size making it easier for consumers looking to monitor their sweet intake.

The cookies are made using a graham cracker batter that replicates the taste and texture of a cheesecake crust made from the same biscuits. The cookies are indented in the centre and filled with a small dollop of cream cheese filling and poached red cherries.

As consumers look to be conscientious of their dessert intake during the holiday seasons, miniature versions of classic sweets offers a way to enjoy the dish without going overboard in consumption.
