Party Cheesecakes

1:53 PM
Party Cheesecakes are the perfect mini cheesecakes.  Drop a vanilla wafer in the bottom of paper liners, fill with a creamy cheesecake mixture.  Bake and top with canned pie filling.  Did I say these are the perfect mini cheesecake?

I have had this recipe for years. It was given to me by a dear friend. 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 days, some of the moms in the church would have Tupperware, Home Interior, and Mary Kay parties.  That might just be how the recipe got its name, Party Cheesecakes.

Although the days of Tupperware parties are gone, I still like to serve them at baby showers, wedding showers, and any time I need the perfect dessert finger food.

In the spring I use the peach pie filling, the winter I like to use strawberries, cherries and blueberries are so festive for patriotic holidays.  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.  

Party Cheesecakes
    24 paper muffin cup liners
    24 Vanilla Wafers
    2 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
    3/4 cup sugar

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.

  2. Back when I was newly married I had never heard of cheese (and was probably totally grossed out by the thought of a CHEESE cake, LOL). I somehow discovered these wonderful little bites, and was hooked. They were all the rage, what 2 - 3 decades ago (!), fallen from favor, and now they are back again. And rightly so, because I love these as much now as I did back then.
