Stars & Stripes Mini Cheesecakes

Recipe

As I’ve been experimenting lately with different cashew cheeses, (here and here), I thought I’d take it even further with a cheesecake. And with the 4th of July right around the corner, I decided to add a bit of flair to the cakes with blueberries and strawberries as the flag. After all, what’s more American than stars and stripes?
