Canada Day Mini Cheesecakes!

Happy Canada Day everybody! I have said this so many times, but I have become even more patriotic since moving away from Canada. I love my country and am always so proud to say that I am a Canadian when people ask me.

Celebrating Canada Day has always been a highlight of the summer for me, and so I wanted to keep that tradition up here in Italy. This year however we skipped the BBQ party since we didn't want to risk it with Covid-19 and so I decided to make these quick and simple mini cheesecakes instead!

The recipe is so easy to make that it only takes 20 minutes, PLUS it's a no bake cheesecake, so it saves you from adding extra heat into the house.

You can find my step by step video of the reicpe here :
