Mini cheesecakes are quick and easy to fix and bake, and then they're delicious when topped with preserves, pie filling, fruit, or nuts.

All you need are vanilla wafers — which act as crusts — and a simple sweetened cream cheese and egg batter. The cheesecakes are baked in muffin cups.


  • 1 dozen vanilla wafers
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 325 F.

  2. Line muffin tin with foil liners. Place a vanilla wafer in each liner. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar; beat until well blended. Beat in eggs until blended. Pour cream cheese mixture over wafers, filling each liner about 3/4-full. Bake for 25 minutes.

  3. Top with preserves, fresh sliced fruit, pie filling, sugared pecans, toasted coconut, or shaved chocolate.
