I have had this recipe for years. It was given to me by a dear friend Rita Frantzen. She was my girls piano teacher, and we attended church together along with all the activities at the school. I remember her serving these at some of the parties she gave, and I asked her for the recipe. Back in those day, some of the moms in the church would have Tupperware, Home Interier, and Mary Kay parties. The days of the Tupperware parties are gone, but there is now Southern Living at Home parties and many others. That just maybe how the recipe got it's name, Party Cheesecakes. The recipe calls for fruit pie filling, but I have in the last years used fresh fruit on top of a little cloud of whipped cream.
24 paper muffin cup liners
24 Vanilla Wafers
2 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can cherry pie filling
Place one vanilla wafer in 24 paper muffin cup liners in a muffin tin. Combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla. Beat until creamy and smooth. Pour 2/3 full into each muffin cup liner. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool and refrigerate. Before serving add a spoonful of the pie filling on top of the cheesecakes.
