Preparation
STEP 1

Preheat oven to 325°F.

STEP 2

In a food processor, combine cream cheese, eggs, sour cream and pulse until combined. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, crabmeat, pepper and half of chopped chives. Pulse to combine, scrape sides of bowl and then pulse once more.

STEP 3

Spray a nonstick mini muffin tin (24 2-ounce cups) very well with cooking spray. Coat bottom and sides of each cup with breadcrumbs, making sure there is a thick layer on the bottom of each. Spoon one heaping tablespoon of batter in each cup and top with a pinch of reserved chives.

STEP 4

Place on a sheet pan with sides and place in oven. Pour just enough water onto sheet pan to cover bottom. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

STEP 5

Carefully remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Remove cheesecakes by running a clean paring knife around edge before gently lifting out. Serve cold or at room temperature.
