Easy Mini Cheesecakes


I’m sure lots of people have made this recipe or a similar one, but I hadn’t until I saw this one from "Land O Lakes Best Loved Recipes".  The only problem I had was the size of the vanilla wafers…were they big enough to fill the bottom of a muffin cup at one time?  They aren’t now – at least not the famous brand.  I actually checked the box to make sure I hadn’t purchased some kind of mini wafers.  However, even though they didn’t completely cover the bottom of the cupcake liner, they worked, and the cheesecakes were delicious!  Don’t overbake – they will set up after removal from the oven.
