Mini Cheesecakes

I've had this recipe forever. My grandma(s), yes both of them, used to make these for a special dessert. Makes 12.

Mini Cheesecakes:
16oz cream cheese
1c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Nilla' Wafers
pie filling or preserves of your choice
cupcake liners

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put cupcake liners into a cupcake pan.
  • Place a Nilla' Wafer into the bottom of each cupcake liner...flat side down.
  • Mix cream cheese, sugar, eggs & vanilla using a hand blender or standing mixer.
  • Using a scoop, portion the cream cheese mixture into the 12 cupcakes liners. 
  • Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes.
  • Allow the cheesecakes to cool completely.
  • The cheesecakes will sink in a little bit & form an indentation.
  • Spoon some preserves or pie filling into each cheesecake. 
  • Enjoy...
  • Refrigerate if not eaten immediately/soon.
