Mini Cheesecakes

Jim prefers all things chocolate, but every once in a while I just gotta make a departure into the kinds of desserts I love. This is one of them. My favorite topping is blueberry pie filling, but fresh fruits—blackberries, strawberries, and more—are delicious, too.

2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened (I use fat-free)

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

vanilla wafers

pie filling or fresh fruits for topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line all 12 cups of muffin pan with muffin/baking liners. Place a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each cup.

Beat first four ingredients together until smooth. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full with cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from oven; refrigerate until set. Before serving, top with desired toppings.

Makes 12 servings.
