Well 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)
