Enjoy these Cheesecake Bites as a festive treat for the holidays; they’re sweet, creamy and delicious.

To start, bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside for an additional hour without opening the oven door.

Remove the cheesecake and allow it to cool in the refrigerator. Next, in a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add diced pears and halved grapes, sautéing for 3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, honey and vanilla extract, cooking until the mixture reaches a desired syrupy consistency.

Allow the pear and grape garnish to cool to room temperature. Next, cut the chilled cheesecake into 30 pieces.

Generously top each piece with the pear and grape garnish, distributing the flavorful syrup over the cheesecake.

These cheesecake bites are perfect for special occasions or as a sweet ending to any meal. This cheesecake bite recipe is sure to become a favorite.
