Mini Cheesecake Tarts

cheesecake tart

We had some friends over for dinner Sunday night and I had the abnormal desire to make something for dessert. Again, this is very odd for me. In any event, I wanted something no-fuss and fast! I reminisced to when I was a kid and loved the bite size cheesecakes -- well, almost bite size. I decided to go with that! This recipe was really easy and enabled me to use our KitchenAid mixer :) They were a hit! These are great for dinner parties or hors d'oeuvres. You could even get creative and make multiple batches and top with various fruits. Hm, this might make the go-to list. Yield: 24 tarts Cook Time: 25 minutes 12 vanilla wafers 2 packages 8 oz. cream cheese (I used one regular, one reduced fat) 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 1 can cherry pie topping (or whichever kind you prefer) Heat oven to 325 degrees. Line muffin tin with foil liners. Place a vanilla wafer in each liner. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar. Beat until well blended. Beat in eggs until blended. Pour mixture over wafers, filling each liner about 3/4 cup full. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool and top with your favorite topping, mine was cherry pie filling! Mmmm scrumptious :)
