I hosted a pampered chef party the other night (which was soo fun) and I decided to try out these mini cheesecakes. They turned out SO delicious! YUMMY! They were really easy to make too. I will definitely be making them again soon. Give them a try!

Recipe adapted from Our Best Bites
Mini Cheesecakes


  • 14 Nilla Wafer Cookies
  • 2 8oz packages cream cheese (softened)
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 2 Tbs powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Foil cupcake liners
  • Optional Toppings:
  • canned pie filling
  • fresh berries
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate sauce
  • caramel sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl beat cream cheese and sugar. Add in flour and baking powder and beat until combined. Then mix in eggs, one at a time, lemon juice, and vanilla.
  2. Fill a muffin pan with cupcake liners and place two vanilla wafers at the bottom of each one. Divide batter between 18 liners, filling each cup up to about 1/4 inch from the top. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  3. When you take them out of the oven, place them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely. Before you place your toppings on, chill in the fridge for at least 2-4 hours.. Then top and serve. My favorite topping is fresh strawberries. :)

    Mini as in mini cupcake pan and liners? You used two vanilla mini wafers ? Why are you using two liners? One regular, one foil. Sorry to have questions, but you didn’t see clear on these items
