Cheesecake Cupcakes

These little cheese tarts have appeared at just about every get-together and occasion since my sister first made them when she was married in the late 60's.  We have always made them with a regular graham cracker bottom but this time I changed it up a bit by using crushed chocolate graham crackers. Top with cherry pie filling or any other that you like.

Cheesecake Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Line muffin tins with muffin cups (Makes 24)

Mix together the following ingredients and divide between 24 muffin cups, pressing slightly into paper cup:
1 1/2 cups regular or chocolate graham crackers crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled

Cream together:
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese. softened.
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar.
1 teaspoon vanilla
Just out of the oven slightly puffed (they will sink a little as they cool)
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling or other pie filling

Fill muffin cups with cream cheese mixture.  Bake 12-15 minutes.  When cool, top with pie filling.

How could I possibly NOT comment when seeing this post? Really, makes me want to make them today, they look so good and so pretty! What a perfect Valentine post! I like the font you used on the picture too! Fonts add a special touch, even when the picture like yours, does not need any. Thank you so much for sharing this easy to make recipe.

Oh my! I remember making those way back in my high school days when I would host Tupperware parties (to build my "hope chest"). I just may have to make some homemade chocolate grahams to make them too.
