Mini Cheesecake Recipe


4 (eight ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
36 vanilla wafers
Fresh strawberries for garnish or a can of your favorite pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line 36 muffin pan cups with paper liners.

Beat cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl until soft and creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract. Place a vanilla wafer in each paper lined muffin cup. Spoon cream cheese mixture over wafers, filling lined muffin cups almost full. Bake for 15 minutes. Leave in muffin pans and chill 8 hours.

To serve, top each with a whole or sliced strawberry, or 1 tablespoon of your favorite pie filling.
