Mini Cheesecakes with Cherry Filling

I have made these individual cheesecakes countless times and they are a huge hit everywhere! You can use any filling you like- cherry, strawberry, blueberry, apple, or seasonal fresh fruit - the variations are limitless.... They are absolutely delicious, so versatile, and really easy to make!


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 muffin tins (tassie pans) with foil/paper liners.

Place one vanilla wafer 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 18-20 minutes. Cool. Cheesecake will most probably sink in the center but that is okay- you actually want that because this indentation is the perfect home for the topping- a teaspoonful of cherry pie filling in each mini cheesecake.
