Perfect little basic cheesecakes. I prepared these along with Recipe #99995 and Recipe #114872 all in mini form for a friend's birthday celebration. These were topped with cherry pie filling and were very well received.

Where was this recipe hiding all these years. It is absolutely great! really no words can describe it. the only thing I did different is I chopped up the vanilla wafers and put 2tbls on the bottom, I found the wafers to be to small. thank you thank you.
