Mini Cherry Cheesecakes


INGREDIENTS

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

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line miniature muffin tins (tassie pans) 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.

My Notes: I would let the cream cheese soften before you use it so you don't end up with lumpy batter. I did not need a full box of vanilla wafers...you may want to start out with grinding up half. This recipe is from Allrecipes.
