Mini Individual Cheesecakes Recipe

16 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 box vanilla wafers
1/2 can cherry pie filling
2" foil midget cups

Soften cheese, beat in eggs, vanilla, and sugar until smooth.  Put wafers in cups flat side down.  Fill cups almost full with mixture and bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees.  When cool, top with cherry and sauce.  Yield 30.  Will keep 4 days or can be frozen and then thawed.  All you'll need to do is add the cherries!

Enjoy these yummy treats for summer, parties, or holidays.  I love that they are the perfect size for dessert and if you want to make mini cheesecakes, you can adapt by getting mini foil cups and mini vanilla wafers.  The mini versions work great for an open house or potluck where people want a sampling of many items.  They truly make a bite-size as opposed to the version I posted above that are about the size of a traditional cupcake.  At our recent neighborhood party, individual cheesecakes were the first to go!
