Mini Cheesecakes

Of course, every gathering needs a dessert, so I decided to make some mini cheesecakes using my regular size muffin tin. I lined it with silver wrappers in honor of the Stanley Cup and they turned out great! Even though they puffed up and then caved in the middle, it made a perfect indention to fill in with cherry pie filling!

If you mix about 1 cup sour cream and 2-3 tbsp sugar and top it on the cheese cake and then put on the pie filling it adds an extra bit of sweetness. Just thought I'd share.

These look so delicious. I wonder if blueberry would work as well.

Sure they would, Donna! Any fruit filling would work great, just spoon on prior to serving! :)
