Party Cheesecakes

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.
