These are wonderful (cute too!!!) and easy to make. I made them for a pitch in lastnight and they worked great!! Thanks for posting a good recipe.
Easy to make & delicious. My husband loves cherry cheesecake, & went crazy for these, as did my brother-in-law.
These were incredible and deserve a 5-star rating. I not only made cherry but made blueberry also.
I decided to throw a wrench in my aunt's cookie exchange and bring these for each participant instead - a half dozen for each person. It was such an easy recipe that I didn't mind at all that I had to make it 7 times. They were so easy and beautiful when finished. I used strawberry, blueberry and cherry topping on the cheesecakes and the presentation in the container was beautiful. Oh, and they were absolutely delicious, too! Will definitely make again. Thanks! Oh, one more thing. My cheese "batter" was pretty lumpy (kind of looked like cottage cheese) and I've never made cheesecake before so I didn't know if this was normal or not. I've since read that you should let all ingredients (including the eggs) get to room temp prior to making cheesecake to prevent this. They still tasted wonderful but may have ended up creamier if I had done this first.
Agree with other reviews. Wonderful!I wanted to add that I tripled the batch and they turned out great (they always sink a little -- perfect reservoir for the topping!). I also made some in mini muffin tins with a little bit of broken off graham cracker in the bottom -- baked for about 8-9 minutes. I would also recommend placing a small container of water in the oven while baking -- prevents cracks and really helps the cheesecakes be creamier. Also, these are quite sweet!
I made these for New Years Eve. They turned out great! I tripled the recipe, and topped them in a variety of ways; with blueberry, cherry, or strawberry pie filling, chocolate chips, and the favorite was chocolate chips, sugared pecans, and caramel sauce. They were gone in a jiffy. Thanks for posting!
Very good, extremely easy, and versatile. No Vanilla Wafers where I live so tried a couple different cookies for the base - including oreo (just cookie, not frosting). Also varied the approach with some cookie bases being crushed (like graham cracker crust), while others were whole - they worked equally well. I used the canned cherry topping, but could imagine making my own fruit/berry combo. Brought to a dinner and had to carry some distance, but they transported well.
This recipe is so easy to make, not to mention absolutely delicious. I made two batches and now have it memorized. I'll be pulling it out again and again, I know. The husband liked the cheesecakes plain more than with the pie topping. I think next time I may try fresh strawberries -- maybe even a drizzle of chocolate or caramel instead of cherry. Thanks for a great recipe that'll be so easy to play with in the future.
Flavor - okay. They'd work in a pinch but not really what I was looking for. Not a fan of the vanilla wafer crust. overall just okay.
