Mini Cheesecakes with Raspberry Sauce

I love mini desserts. I wonder why? Maybe it’s because if I eat more than one I don’t feel like I’m overindulging. Oh who am I kidding, this coming from the girl who ate dessert first when she was little. I always overindulge! I think it’s because there’s always equally proportioned crust to filling, frosting to cake. That must be it!
