Cherry Cheese Tarts


These are my brother, Andy's favorite treat. I made them for him for his birthday. I also bought him a Coke bottled in Mexico from our local Cantina. He likes "Mexico Coke" better....he swears it's sweeter! Happy Birthday Andy. I love you!


Ingredients

24 Nilla wafers
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cans cherry pie filling

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line each cup with a cupcake paper.
Mix cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla.
Scrape down sides of bowl and mix again.
Place a wafer (round side up) into each cupcake liner.
Fill with cream cheese mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Cool completely, then top each tart with the pie filling.
Refrigerate until time to serve, best if at least 4 hours.
(Blueberry topping would be good too, our fam just loves cherry!)
