These cheesecakes have swirls on cinnamon sugar goodness and are covered (drenched?) in a cream cheese frosting.

These cheesecakes are super simple. No water bath is needed and they only bake for about 20-22 minutes. The only hard part is waiting for them to cool. 1 hour at room temperature + 2 hours in the fridge. But it will all be worth it!
