In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press gently onto the bottom of 9 paper-lined muffin cups. In another small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add egg; beat on low speed just until combined. Spoon over crusts.
Bake at 350° for 15-16 minutes or until centers are set. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Remove paper liners; top each cheesecake with 1 teaspoon jam.
Test Kitchen tips
The key to the creamiest cheesecake is to not overbake it. It's a good idea to start checking on baked goods a few minutes earlier than the recommended time in case your oven runs hot.
Time is of the essence with many desserts, but cheesecake is one that actually tastes better the next day and has a shelf life of up to a few days. Cheesecake also freezes beautifully. Good news for your party planning!
