  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Place a vanilla wafer into the bottom of each muffin cup.
  3. Beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a bowl until fluffy. Spoon mixture into the muffin cups, filling them 2/3 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheesecake filling is set, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Spoon 2 or 3 cherries from pie filling over each cheesecake.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I've made this with vegan wafers and dairy-free cream cheese for a friend with a milk allergy. She loved it.

It was a hit! I used the mini vanilla wafers in mini-muffin papers.

I make this recipe a few times a year for different occasions and its always a hit. Quick and easy to make and delicious!

I did not use the lemon juice I used 2 teaspoons of vanilla everybody loved them used regular muffin tins and reg vanilla wafers next time maybe I will try graham crackers just for a change LD

Really fast to make, and so delicious.

I made these according to directions and they perfect! Took them on a hike with several girls and everyone raved. Taste exactly like a recipe I used years ago and had lost.
