These are so fun to make with different toppings as well. We love making them with all kinds of different fruits. They also taste delicious with chocolate sauce on top!

Easy and delicious mini cheesecakes – perfect for a quick and yummy dessert!



  • 24 Nilla Wafer Cookies
  • 16 oz cream cheese (softened, 2 packages)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp 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 powdered sugar, 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 12 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. :)

  35. YUM!
    How many cups does this recipe make?

  36. 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

  37. Oh good heavens- it’s okay to eat more than one – right??!! :)

  38. The mini cheesecakes … did you use one of those “bite-sized” muffin tins (24 cupcakes) or the regular-sized muffin tins (6 cupcakes)?


  39. Dobyou refridgerate

  40. What is the powder sugar for

  41. can you freeze these?

  42. Can you make these with graham cracker crumbs instead  of the wafers? 

  43. I have made these for years.  Great dessert.  I have used chocolate cream cheese too, which makes a really nice dessert too..
