I love cheesecake and mini ones are fun to have.  I have been making these mini cheesecakes forever.  However, years ago a friend shared the chocolate swirl version with me.  YUM!  There are many fun variations you can make with them too.  I’m sure there are many more than what I am sharing today.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese (I have used the lowfat version also and it works fine)
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • vanilla wafers or oreo cookies
  • 18 cupcake liners
  • pie filling I like cherry or blueberry or fresh fruit

Instructions
 

  • Cream cream cheese and sugar together.  Add eggs and lemon juice.  Beat until smooth.
  • Line cupcake pan with liners.  Place vanilla wafer flat side down in each liner.  If using oreos, use the chocolate wafers after scraping frosting off.
  • Fill 3/4 full with cream cheese mixture.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow cheesecakes to cool and store in the fridge.  Paper liners can be left on or removed.
  • To serve: top with pie filling.  The cheesecakes can also be frozen.  Freeze before topping.  Then thaw and top with pie filling.

Notes

Chocolate swirl variation: Make using oreo cookies as base.  Fill as above in recipe.  Cook cheesecakes for 6 minutes.  Drop 4 to 5 chocolate chips in batter.  Let sit for a minute for chocolate to melt.  Swirl chocolate in the batter with a toothpick.  Continue baking until done.
Turtle variation: Make using oreo cookies as base.  Fill and cook as above in recipe.  (can also use the chocolate swirl variation for this too).  Remove paper liners.  To serve: drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with chopped pecans or 1 pecan half.
