Mini Cheesecakes




Nilla wafer or other cookie in that style. Chocolate wafer cookies are yummy as well!
1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, slightly softened
2 eggs
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla




Preheat oven to 375. Line mini muffin pan with 24 mini muffin cups. (Do not push all the way down as the Nilla wafers need to go in next.) Place a Nilla wafer into each muffin cup right side up (flat side down).

Mix cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Spoon cream cheese mixture over wafers, filling cups to almost full. You may get more than 24. If you do, put the remaining filled muffin cups on a baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until set. The mixture shouldn't jiggle. 

Top with your choice of garnishes! Sliced strawberries, mini chocolate chips, cherry pie mix (from a can). Keep in fridge until ready to serve.

This recipe comes from a former innkeeper by way of her mother by way of a recipe in the Boston Globe circa 1965.  The oldies are still goodies!
