"These aren't done with graham wafers, but with vanilla wafer cookies and are fast, easy and excellent! These are great to give away during the holidays! For a pretty presentation, you can top each one with a rosette of sweetened cream cheese or whipped cream right before serving. Any flavor fruit filling will do."

This was gobbled up! I made a graham crust for them instead of the wafers with 9 graham crackers, 1 T. sugar, and 2 T. butter. I put 1 T. in each cup and pressed down. I used a spoonful of bl...

O My Gosh, These mini cheese cakes are the perfect New York style which is somewhat dense but never creamy. I made over 100 of these for a benefit and they were eaten quickly. I used 1/2 package...
