How to bake cheesecake in jars in a toaster oven?

No oven here, just a toaster oven. I want to bake cheesecake in jars. All the recipes I've looked at bake the cheesecake jars in a water bath. To me this seems unsafe for a toaster oven (the exposed heating units will get wet). Can I bake them without the water bath or am I risking cracking the jars?

How do I bake cheesecake jars in a toaster oven?

mini cheesecakes (muffin tins, right?) seem too small to me. I like a bigger portion (or I'll have three ;-]).

Doesn't have to be muffin tins, I was thinking small tart pans. They vary in size, so you can go as big or tiny as you want.

There might be too much at risk here. The water bath seems necessary and I definitely wouldn't suggest trying to do that in a toaster oven. Are you married to the idea of cheesecakes in jars? Maybe you could make mini cheesecakes instead?
