A crunchy vanilla wafer crust recipe fill with a classic creamy cheesecake center.


Makes 48
1 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Topping Ideas:
Chocolate frosting, whip cream, marischino cherries.


Preheat oven to 350F.

Line one or two miniature muffin tins with miniature paper liners.

Crush the vanilla wafers, and place 1/2 teaspoon into each paper liner cup.

In a large bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Pour batter into muffin cups about 3/4 full.

Remoce cheesecake bites from the oven and allow to cool before decorating.
