Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Bites


Ingredients :

2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese (softened to Room Temp)

3/4 cup of Sugar

3 (large) eggs

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed, if you can!)

Dash or 2 of lemon zest (optional)

Mini Nilla Wafers (REGULAR! none of that LowFat shit..)

1 can pie filling of your choice (Strawberry is always a winn

Instructions :


Fill a mini cupcake pan with mini liners and put your mini wafers in with the mounded side up•Put all your ingredients together: cream cheese, sugar, extract of your choice, eggs, lemon juice and the lemon zest, if you chose to use it.

Cream everything together with an electric mixer until silky smooth — no lumps!!

Fill your cupcake liners to about 3/4 full, as you would normal cupcakes .. these will puff up and then die down with a dip in the middle, so don’t be afraid if you accidentally overfill it. (I did a little over 3/4 full and they turned out just fine.)

Bake @ 350 degrees for about 18-20 min.

Allow them to cool before you fill them … I stuck mine in the fridge for a bit to let them set.
