Mini Cheesecakes: Can I use a Graham Cracker Round instead of a Nilla Wafer?

Aloo0628 | Jun 23, 2008 05:57 PM

I want to make a batch of mini cheesecakes, but I don't have Nilla Wafers (and would rather try something a bit more interesting anyhow) - I have some cinnamon graham crackers that I'd like to use instead.

Every recipe I've found for mini cheesecakes has called for either a Nilla Wafer - whole - or a graham crumb crust to be pressed into the bottom of the cup for a crust. But I'm wondering: Can I cut the graham crackers into rounds and use them, whole, to make crusts the way one would a Nilla wafer? Or do I have to use go to the trouble of making little crumb crusts?

Thanks!
