    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In food processor, place crust ingredients. Cover; process, using on-and-off pulses, until well combined. Spoon 2 teaspoons crust mixture into each muffin cup; firmly press in bottom and up side of cup.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, 1 tablespoon preserves, 1/4 cup sugar, the egg, sour cream and salt with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into each crust-lined cup.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely.
  • 5
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave 1 1/2 cups preserves uncovered on High 30 seconds or until softened. Spoon 1 tablespoon preserves onto each mini cheesecake. Refrigerate until chilled.

  • Look for guava preserves with the other jams and jellies or in the Hispanic section of the supermarket. If you can’t find guava preserves or jelly, substitute apple butter.
  • If you don’t have a food processor, crush the graham crackers in a resealable food-storage bag with a rolling pin or meat mallet, then mix the crumbs in a bowl with the sugar and melted butter.
