Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Microwave oven by power - 700w


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup (40g) graham cracker crumbs
  • oz (170g) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup (60g) + 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • ¼ cup (60ml) + 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Mix the crust: In a separate bowl, combine the butter and cracker crumbs, and mix well. Evenly distribute the crust mixture (about 3 tablespoons) on the bottom of each portion of the 1/2 Cup Anytime Freezer Trays, pressing to compact.
  2. Make the filling: In a separate bowl, whisk the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the remaining batter ingredients and mix well.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly among the cavities of the trays, smoothing out the top if needed. Cook uncovered at Power Level 5

    Certain foods cook best in the microwave at lower power levels. 


    Different microwaves have different settings. See your microwave manual (or look it up online) to learn how to change your microwave’s power level.

    For many microwaves: enter the cook time, press the “Power” (or “Power Level”) button, and select a number between 1-10. Other microwaves may require selecting the Power Level first, and then entering the cook time.

    Microwaves list power levels in different ways. Here’s a guide to help you adjust:

    PL 10 = 100% = High (default)

    PL 9 = 90% = High

    PL 8 = 80% = Med-High

    PL 7 = 70% = Med-High

    PL 6 = 60% = Medium

    PL 5 = 50% = Medium

    PL 4 = 40% = Med-Low

    PL 3 = 30% = Med-Low

    PL 2 = 20% = Low

    PL 1 = 10% = Low

    You will know if the power level has been successfully changed if you hear periodic changes in the microwave’s tone after it begins cooking.

    for 5 minutes per tray, or until the batter puffs up slightly on the side and it gently jiggles when shaken.
  4. Cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Carefully remove each cheesecake from the mold and serve.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Use fresh whipped cream to decorate the tops of the cheesecakes.
  • Add lemon, orange, or lime zest to the batter for a citrus twist.
  • Top with fresh fruit or jam.
  • Drizzle caramel or chocolate sauce for an extra sweet treat.

Recipe notes

  • Cooked cheesecakes can be saved in the freezer, covered, for up to 3 months.
  • The crust can be made with any cookie of your choice.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
