These mini cheesecakes were the perfect size. They were super easy and everyone loved them. I adapted them from a recipe from the Nabisco website. I actually got more than 12 out of this recipe (I think it made 16).
24 NILLA Wafers, divided
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup white chocolate chips, melted
1/4 cup strawberry preserves (I used homemade triple berry preserves)
Preheat oven to 325°F. Place 1 cookie in each of 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Combine cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until blended. Spoon evenly into prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 20 to 25 min. or until centers are almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Meanwhile, drizzle melted chocolate evenly over remaining 12 cookies. Let stand at room temperature until chocolate is firm.
Top each cheesecake with 1 tsp. preserves and 1 decorated cookie just before serving. Store leftover cheesecakes in refrigerator.
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 6 hr 5 min
Makes: 12 servings, 1 mini cheesecake each

Love the site, Can’t figure out how to save all recipes into my recipe box. Appreciate your help. Thanks.
Ya know. This recipe might not be in the right format…it’s several years old. I will try to get it fixed for you. 🙂 Glad to hear someone uses the recipe box.
We tried these and they are awesome-we did substitute the white chocolate for dark chocolate but still a wonderful recipe-Thanks Wendy!!

Have a nice day
Hi Wendy. I apologize for not getting your badge up. I am not sure what happened because I did put it on my other blog and I usually do both together. Anyway, it is fixed now and I will be more careful.

These look wonderful. I am not sure if I like the idea of portion controlled cheesecake though 🙂 Just kidding. They look great and I'm going to be saving your recipe.

Yum! I think mini anything are so much fun — but these are so adorable AND serving sized. This would be a huge hit with my family!
