Mini Cheesecakes

cherry cheesecakes JBDWell before blogs existed, recipes were written and passed down through a strong line of ladies on the Italian side of my family. Mini cheesecakes are not inherently Italian, at all, however this easy, fun bite of a recipe is a sweet treat worth sharing. Food is life, and when made with love, it doesn’t get any better…

12 foil liners

12 vanilla wafers (make your own just like this)

2 eight ounce packages of cream cheese

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 organic eggs

Place one vanilla wafer in each foil liner.

Mix cream cheese, vanilla and sugar on medium speed until well-blended. Mix in eggs.

Pour mixture over wafers, filling 3/4 full.

Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.

Let cool and top with fresh fruit, preserves, nuts or chocolate. Be creative!!

(JBD Note: “be creative!!” is a notation by my effervescent mom, JoJo, who adds that line to many a recipe)
