  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • For the sugar cookies, cream the sugar and the butter.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Mix the sugar with the cinnamon, flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter and mix until it forms a dough.
  • Line and grease a 12 muffin tin.
  • Roll out the cookie dough.
  • Using a cookie cutter or a cup, cut out circles in the dough. Then shape the circles into cups in the muffin tin.
  • Bake the cookie cups for 8 minutes and remove from the oven. (You may have some leftover dough, which you can use to make some sugar cookies).
  • Let the cookie cups rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • In the mean time, prepare the cheesecake filling by beating the cream cheese with the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  • After the cookie cups have rested for at least 10 minutes, fill the cups with the cheesecake filling.
  • Bake 20 more minutes, or until the cheesecake has set.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Chill overnight.
  • You can add a fruit or chocolate sauce on top as a garnish.
