Petite Chocolate Cherry Cheesecakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Proud Veterans wife

I got this recipe out of The Pampered Chef Delightful Desserts (from easy to elegant). I used to work for them and have a ton of their recipes. I have not made many of them in such a long time because I mostly use zaar. So decided I would post my favorties on here (in hopes of using them again). I thought I would share them too hope you enjoy!

Excellent! Made this last night for a Christmas potluck lunch and it turned out wonderfully. The only thing I found odd is that one batch of this filling only makes 12 cheesecakes. Luckily I had enough to make another batch to fill the other twelve cups. And I did not overfill them, that is was a heaping tablespoon each. I also input the ingredients in my recipe builder on another site doubled and the calories came out roughly the same as it says here, so I can only assume there's a bit of a mix up here. Also, I couldn't find reduced fat cookies and regular cookies didn't fit. I smashed them in to make them fit. :-) Next time I'll try Chewy Chips Ahoy, they're pretty small cookies.... and they're just yummy. Tasty recipe though, will make again for sure! Don't forget to double!
