Mini Cheesecakes with Vanilla Wafer Crust

  • Author: Melissa
  • Yield: 24 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 Box of vanilla wafer cookies, such as Nabisco Nilla Wafers
  • 2 (8oz.) packages of softened cream cheese
  • Pie filling – use any kind you like. I used cherry and peach
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs

Other Equipment Needed:

  • mini cupcake wrappers
  • mini muffin tin

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Line mini muffin tins with cupcake wrappers
  3. Place a vanilla wafer in each wrapper – If you are struggling to get the cookie to fit then you can turn the cookie around so the rounded side is facing down.
  4. Mix cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar
  5. Add eggs and mix well
  6. Spoon the mixture over vanilla wafers – filling cupcake wrappers all of the way
  7. Bake for 25 minutes
  8. Chill
  9. Remove the mini cheesecake bites from the muffin tin
  10. Top with pie topping and serve!

Notes

muffin tin

This photo shows you how the cookie will fit into the muffin tin. It doesn’t go down 100% of the way. The cookie will have a small air pocket under it. I like to use a cupcake liner to make lifting the cheesecakes out of the tin easier and it also hides any imperfections. If you want, you can also try flipping the cookie around so the rounded part is on the bottom of the tin. It will be a bit wobbly, but it should help it fit perfectly into the mini muffin tin.

  1. How many does this recipe make?

  2. I want to double the recipe. Will one can of cherry pie filling do, or should I buy two cans?

    • Just to be safe…buy one more can. You might have a little left over from the first can for a few more, but definitely not for another 24.

  3. Do I need to get the mini vanilla wafers? Or do the regular sized work in the mini muffin tins?

  4. it sounds very good will try it and the granddaughter will love helping with it thanks

    • I’m glad you’re going to give the recipe a try. I think the cheesecake bites will be a hit. Including your granddaughter sounds perfect. Some of my best memories are of cooking with my grandma.

  5. I have a metal mini muffin tin and a Nilla wafer does not fit in the bottom of the cups. It either sits in sideways (tilted) or I had push and crush it down into place. On your web page you have a link to amazon and a silicon muffin tin but in the photos you show a metal pan and the cookies look like they drop in perfectly. What metal pan are you using? I made it and they tasted great and look awful. I wanted to make this for my mother’s birthday party this weekend and I would like to know what I am doing wrong or do I have the wrong pan? I hope to hear from you soon, so I can make them for the party otherwise plan B is use a regular muffin pan and a different recipe.

    • Hi Debra. I used a muffin tin that is unfortunately discontinued. It’s a vintage mini muffin tin. I suggested a silicone mini muffin tin because silicone is so easy to work with and everything usually comes out easily. After I read your comment, I ran to my kitchen and pulled out my vintage mini muffin tins and another – no-name mini muffin tin that I have in the cabinet. I tried placing a vanilla wafer into both the older tin and the new one. Your right, it doesn’t fit completely flush with the bottom, but it goes down almost all of the way with only a tiny pocket of air under the cookie. Unfortunately, not every cookie will be the exact size or shape. So, even if one fits perfectly, the next is bound to be lopsided. I took a photo to show you how a vanilla wafer fit into my pan and I will get that uploaded asap. Here’s what I would suggest if you are willing to give it a go for your mom’s birthday party. Try using a cupcake wrapper. I like to use a dark wrapper. It hides any inconsistencies with the cookies. Also, try flipping the cookie around so the rounded side (top) of the cookie is on the bottom of the muffin tin. It will be a bit wobbly, but it should fit into the muffin tin. I hope this helps and you can use the recipe for the party. I’m uploading a photo for you now.
