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 winner)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. 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.
  2. Cream everything together with an electric mixer until silky smooth — no lumps!!
  3. 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.
  4. Allow them to cool before you fill them … I stuck mine in the fridge for a bit to let them set.
