Cherry Cheesecake Tartlettes

One great thing about having a cooking blog is you start to 'meet' other bloggers. One of my best blogger friends is Tricia! I've used a few of her recipes, and knew when she blogged this one that I'd be making it for sure. It takes all of the hassle and worry of making a whole cheesecake, and it's so cute!

Cherry Cheesecake Tarteletts

2 packages cream cheese at room temp.
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Nilla wafer cookies
Cherry pie filling

1. Combine first 4 ingredients and beat well.
2. Line a cupcake tin with 12 cupcake wrappers (keep the white wrapper inside each foil wrapper).
3. Place 1 Nilla wafer in the center of each cupcake wrapper.
4. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour about 1/4 cup of the cheesecake batter into each cupcake wrapper, covering the Nilla wafer.
5. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until set. (mine took exactly 18 minutes).
6. Let cool, then store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
7. Before serving, top with your choice of topping.

Yield: I got 22 tartlets by measuring about 1/4 cup into each cupcake wrapper
