This 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 🙂
2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese
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.
