Mini Cheesecakes


  • 2 8-ounce packages of low-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Dash of lemon zest
  • Mini Nilla Wafers
  • 1 Can cherry pie filling
  1. Mix together cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest until smooth. (Use an electric mixer – I’ve messed these up before trying to do it by hand. The cream cheese is tough to get smooth if you’re just using elbow grease.)
  2. Line up mini baking cups and place a mini Nilla Wafer face-up inside each one.
  3. Scoop mixture onto wafer, filling cup 3/4 full.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  5. Refrigerate. Once chilled, scoop cherry pie filling atop each mini cheesecake. Chill again.

Yummy!  Enjoy!
