Mini Cheesecakes

I wanted to continue sharing some of my favorite holiday recipes on the blog. For me, an ideal holiday recipe is pretty, stress-free, and most importantly delicious! This recipe checks off on all three requirements! My Mom always made these as a part of her dessert spread for Christmas dinner.

Mom's Mini Cheesecakes

Cheesecake Mix:
3 (8 oz.) Packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
5 Eggs
1 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 300

Mix with mixer and pour into cupcake tins with paper liners. Bake for 30-40 minutes. DO NOT ALLOW EDGES TO BROWN. Remove from oven and let stand until topping is ready.

1 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Sugar
Can of Cherry/ Blueberry Pie Filling (Whichever you prefer. I usually do both)

Mix all the ingredients together. Put about a tsp. of topping on each cheesecake. Then, spoon a dot of the pie filling in the center of each cheesecake. Return to oven for 5 minutes. Let cool then refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes approx. 24 mini cheesecakes
