Super Easy Mini Cherry Cheesecakes

Recipe adapted from Bakerella:

Here is what you will need:

2 pkg. (8oz.) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp lemon juice

48 vanilla wafers (about 1/2 box)

2″ aluminum mini baking cups

Cherry Pie Filling

1. Mix the eggs, softened cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and lemon juice with an electric stand or hand-held mixer. (For about 3 minutes on Med. speed)

.... At this point you can also preheat your oven to 350F.......

2. Place all the baking cups onto a baking sheet. Since these are aluminum they do NOT need special muffin pans as they are strong enough too stand on their own. Put one wafer upside-down in each baking cup. (This is where the 2' cups are important! If you got the regular 2 1/2' cups, they will be too big for the wafer.)

3. Fill each cup with about 3 tablespoons of the cream mixture.

4. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes.
5. Let cool
6. Add about a teaspoon of cherry pie filling on the top of each cheesecake.
7. Refrigerate and ENJOY
