BAKED MINIATURE CHEESECAKE FROM SCRATCH

1 box Nilla wafers
two (8oz) pkgs cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
21 oz can cherry pie filling (or strawberry, blueberry, etc)


PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners. Place one of the vanilla wafers (flat side down) on the bottom of each paper cup.

Whip the softened cream cheese until it is light and fluffy. Gradually add the two eggs and mix well. Now add the vanilla and sugar. The mix may seem to be very runny, but it turns out perfectly. If the mixture has lumps, transfer the batter to a food processor or blender until it is smooth and silky.

Fill each miniature muffin liner with this mixture, almost to the top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool. Top with cherry pie filling.



I also offer an outstanding no-bake cheesecake recipe that would work perfectly as mini cheesecakes too.



GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST RECIPE

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
8 TBS butter
8 TBS white sugar

Mix well with hands, place 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker crust mix in the bottom of each of the muffin papers and lightly press down with a teaspoon. Top with cream cheese filling and fruit.

TIPS:
You may separate the batter into three or four bowls and add flavors to each bowl for a little variety; I use a Oreo cookie crust which is 2 cups of cookie crumbs mixed with 4 tablespoons of melted butter.

For the first bowl, I add 2 tablespoons of crème de menthe. The second bowl add 2 tablespoons of Kahlua and the third; 2 tablespoons of Bailey's Irish Cream. Bake for 15 minutes and take immediately out of the oven to cool. Add melted chocolate (white, milk or dark) and decorate the tops with various candies - the possibilities are endless! (hint: peanut butter)

White Chocolate Red Raspberry
Mixed 1/2 cup melted white chocolate into 1/3 of the batter, swirled 1/4 cup raspberry coulis into batter before filling muffin cups and once baked I topped each with 1/2 teaspoon warmed seedless raspberry jam and drizzled melted white chocolate over the tops.

Chocolate Chip
Substitute crushed Oreos for Nilla wafers, added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to 1/3 of batter, once baked topped with 1/2 teaspoon chocolate ganache.

Cherry Almond
Substitute graham cracker crumbs for Nilla wafers, added 1/2 teaspoon almond extract 1/3 batter and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract to cherry pie filling. Once baked, topped each with 1 teaspoon sweetened sour cream topping (1/2 cup sour cream + 2 tbsp sugar + 1/2 teas vanilla extract) 2-3 cherries and sliced almond. I have more than just a miniature cheesecake recipe. Check out the navigation bar on the left.
