Cheescake doesn't always have to be considered a dessert. Switch up its role at your next dinner party and serve one as a savory appetizer, like with this recipe that uses Cheez-It crackers to create a crunchy and savory crust.


1 package store-bought pie crust1 ½ cup crushed Cheez-Its24 oz cream cheese½ cup sour cream2 large eggs3 Tbsp cornstarch salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut 2-inch circles out of the pie crusts and add to a mini cupcake pan. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of the crushed Cheez-Its in each one. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, and cornstarch until light and fluffy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add to the mini cupcake tins. Bake for 15 minutes.
