Little Party Cheesecakes

Comment on this recipe

"Many times people do not want a big piece of cheesecake, but these are small enough to appeal to most people. They are very attractive served on a pretty tray. (While baking, they puff up; then sink as they cool.)"

Ingredients

3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 carton (8 ounces) sour cream
Sugar, as needed
Pie filling, flavor of choice

Instructions

Blend cream cheese, 1-1/2 cups sugar, vanilla and eggs. Pour batter into small paper-lined cupcake tins; fill only 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Chill.

Spread sour cream over tops and sprinkle with sugar. To serve top with a spoonful of cherry pie filling (or peach, blueberry or apricot pie filling). Yield: approximately 30 cakes.
