Mini Cheesecakes


  • 2 (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 tbsp orange curacao
  • 1 tsp orange peel
  • 18 vanilla wafers
  • 18 tsp. graham cracker crumbs
  • cherry pie filling (Clearbrook Farms Cherry Fruit Tart)
  • 1-2 Tablespoons melted butter to line cups.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, sugar, orange peel and orange curacao. Butter each cup. Place a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each muffin cup. Top each wafer with 1 teaspoon graham cracker crumbs.  Pour batter into cups, bake 20 minutes. Let cool, and then refrigerate for a couple of hours. Top with cherry tart filling.


I used silicon muffin cups in a muffin pan with good results.
