Mini Cheesecakes

These are really fun to set out at a party, especially at he holidays. And, not being a big cheesecake fan, they are just the right size for me. --Mark


1 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line miniature muffin tins with miniature paper liners. Crush the vanilla wafers, and place 1/2 teaspoon of the crushed vanilla wafers into each paper cup. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Fill each miniature muffin liner with this mixture, almost to the top. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool. Top with a teaspoonful of cherry pie filling.


Add 1 tsp lemon juice and use 1/2 cup + of sugar and use water bath. Also, refrigerate for a couple of hours to be able to peel the liners. We have also used whole wafers in the bottom of the cups instead of crushing them.
