Wonderful little cheesecake tarts from Paula Deen. Perfect for just about any occasion.
"@ Cydcej: I am not sure, but I would guess that the cooking time should be reduced. I wish I could give you more help, but I have never tried these as minis, though it sounds like a wonderfully cute idea! I will look around to see if I can find any answers to your question. Good luck, and happy cooking :o)"- catgurrl

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of muffin pan. Beat cream cheese with a handheld electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Lay a vanilla wafer, flat side down, in each muffin cup. Spoon cream cheese mixture over wafers.
Bake for 20 minutes. Allow tarts to cool completely. Serve with cherry filling on top, or pie filling of your choice.
These are delicious, yet easy to make. Kids and adults alike love them. The tart centers will "sink" after removing them from the oven, but they are supposed to, and they hold the cherry (or other fruit) filling better that way. These tarts are best after they've had time to chill, and they also will hold well in the refrigerator for a day or two.

Jackiechan042003 7 months agoThese came out great! I wasn't sure how much mix to put in the muffin cups so I filled them to the top which worked out since the tarts fell a little in the middle, making a dip large enough for the cherry filling, and I had to bakethem for about 30-35 minutes, all and all good recipe

DerangedGuppy 8 months agoI've made this loads of times. You can also replace the extract with lemon extract and leave off the topping for a light lemon-flavored tart.
