These little cheesecakes are fantastic. Not only that, but they’re laughably easy to make. You’ve absolutely got to try them !
- 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 12 vanilla wafers
- 1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling or other pie filling
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a cupcake pan with baking cups.In the bowl of a standing mixer or with a handheld mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla and beat well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.Place a vanilla wafer, flat side down, in each cupcake cup. Scoop cream cheese mixture over wafers.Bake for 20 minutes, until set. The cheesecake will puff up considerably in the oven. Don’t worry; they’ll fall as they cool, leaving room for that cherry filling.After tarts have cooled, spoon cherry filling over the top of each one.
