My husband LOVES cheesecake and it is so nice to have a quick and easy recipe to make small servings of cherry cheesecake! My mom also makes this easy mini cheesecake recipe for parties quite often. She enjoys making cakes and cupcakes and she'll often whip up an extra batch of these individual mini cheesecakes to add variety at the dessert table.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line cupcake pan with liners. Place a vanilla wafer in bottom of each liner.
In a small bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla until fluffy and light.
Fill liners 3/4 full with cream cheese mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Let cool
Set mini cheesecakes out on a tray and display toppings of your choice around the mini cheesecakes. Makes 24 mini cheesecakes.
