Sometimes serving individual little cheesecakes is just a little more special than slicing servings from a large cheesecake. If you're having a small dinner with just a few people, mini cheesecakes are a fun option. I have two ways to make mini cheesecakes, which are easy and work well - one is Wilton's inidividual mini cheesecake pans and the other is this Norpro mini cheesecake pan. But what if you don't have these pans and don't want to invest in something like this when you're only going to use them once in a blue moon? You can bake a whole cheesecake in a 9x13 pan and just cut out individual cheesecakes with a cutter.
