Don't you just LOVE food in miniatures??? Well you might NOT love these because since they are so small and yummy you quickly convince yourself to eat 10!
I got this recipe from Allrecipes and served it during a Redskins game watch Sunday (oh yea and we won!)! Perfect!
1 (12oz) package of Vanilla Wafers (really you will only use like 15 or so, So Don't waste your time, or money, crushing the WHOLE bag like I did! GEZZ!)
2 oz packages cream cheese (I used light cream cheese)
3/4 C White sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 (21oz) can of cherry pie filling (you'll only use like half of it)
Preheat oven to 350 and Line miniature muffin tins with miniature paper liners
Crush wafers and place 1/2 tsp of the crushed wafers into each paper cup.
In a mixing bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Fill each miniature liner with this mixture, almost to the top.
Bake 15 mins. Cool. Top with one cherry each!
Don't worry if your cheesecakes swell up like a cupcake when you pull them out of the oven they'll go down and create a little spot to hold the cherry!
