1 pack of nilla wafers or graham cracker or digestive cookies (add a pinch of cinnamon to the mix)
2 packs (8 oz) of cream cheese (you can substitute 1 pack with low fat cream cheese without loosing the flavor)
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 can cherry pie filling, blueberry, or whatever suits your fancy (optional)
1 pack of mini muffin tin cups (w/ the paper lining) - you will probably use about 12-16 cups depending on how full you fill the cups


1. preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. crush the wafers, and place 1 tbsp of crushed wafers into each cup.
3. beat cream cheese (make sure the cream cheese is at room temp, makes it much much much easier to mix and also makes the consistency better), sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy
4. fill each cup with this mix until 3/4 full
5. bake for 15-20 minutes, let cool then stick in fridge for a couple of hours to let it harden
6. top with a bit of cherry pie filling (optional), you can also used fresh fruit and whipped cream!
