Recipe: Bite-Size Cheesecakes

Bowl_of_red_CherriesThis recipe comes from my sister Juanita.  I made it for my Christmas party, and it was pretty popular.  Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of the little cheesecakes, but they were festive, and very tasty!  Just a little something easy to brighten up these damp, cold, dismal days.  We’re coming up on February, so you could use cherry filling in honor of George Washington 🙂

Bite-Size Cheesecakes

2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

1 can fruit pie filling (cherry, blueberry or apple)

12 vanilla wafers

Take a 12-muffin tin.  Put a muffin paper in each one, and put a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each one.  With a mixer, beat all the ingredients except the pie filling until smooth.  Divide the mixture evenly between all 12.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

After they cool, put 2 tablespoons of fruit pie filling on top of each.
