These miniature cheesecakes with graham cracker crusts and rich cherry topping are absolutely the best!!!! You just can't have one. It's a hit at every gathering!

I made this yesterday to see how they were. We liked the cheesecake part, but I do NOT like canned pie filling (nothing bad about the Comstock filling I used). I don't know that I've ever bought it before and have NO idea why I had it in my pantry. I was thinking maybe using blueberries and cooking them down. What ideas do you have for me? I think I want to make them as mini's rather than full cupcake size.

How about using the filling from the TOH Meyer Lemon Blueberry Tart?
Nov. 19, 2012 7:52 am
Obviously, I'm voting for the Blueberry reduction part....LOL! The recipe Marie suggested above would take it over the top!

This use to be posted here, it's so good. Your idea is perfect ...

The raspberry curd from this cake tastes more like lemon but is excellent. It is mixed with whipped cream for the frosting. Maybe this could work if you don't mind a fluffier filling.

Hmm. I LOVE that Meyer Lemon Blueberry Tart. Those blueberries would be great!

I found this recipe when it was on AR, which it isn't anymore. I have used all different fruits with this recipe and I use just a dab of orange juice not the concentrate. If you up the cornstarch, you can vary the thickness but it turns pretty much like pie filling as is. I love it and make it all the time!

Strawberries would be really good, too. But I can see that it would adapt to any berries. Yum.

You could take the raspberry sauce from this recipe as it is very good . . . this will be less sweet than your cherry mixture if that is what your aiming to do.
Nov. 19, 2012 8:19 am
You know, I've still never made that cheesecake. Those raspberries look really good. It's not the sweetness so much as the taste. I thought the taste of the canned cherries tasted like can.

A pint of fresh blueberries is incorporated into this recipe for a traditional cranberry sauce made from scratch. This sauce can be made a day or two ahead.

This time of year this might be good.

That could be an interesting change. I need to pick up a few bags of cranberries for the freezer while I can.

Sorry. I got waylaid for a bit here with a little minor tragedy. I took two 11-lb turkeys down the street to my DIL's house to put in their fridge. The door to the fridge got left open, so the turkeys are going in the trash! Good thing it's only Monday so they can still thaw OK. DIL is beside herself. I had to reassure her.
Nov. 19, 2012 8:18 am
wow- they thawed really fast- sorry bout the turkeys- but hope she knows it will be ok-
Nov. 19, 2012 8:18 am
Oh no a double turkey tragedy! Hope the rest of your Thanksgiving goes much better!
Nov. 19, 2012 8:22 am
One turkey I had taken from the freezer the day before because I am going to cook one on Wednesday. It was warm. The other one was cold, but no one wants to give it a try.
Nov. 19, 2012 8:24 am
Well, I'm leaning towards the blueberries. I'll be making this in a couple of weeks, so I'll be sure to take photos and give a report. I certainly appreciate all the advice here. Thank you all!

Mini Cheesecakes by Janice Reesman on allrecipes. You have to have the 2" mini tart pans. You use a vanilla wafer for the crust and it fits in perfectly. This is so easy, and it makes a lot with one batch. This is great for Christmas trays. I make my own cherry sauce with frozen cheeries, cornstarch dissolved in cherry juice, bit of almond exract and sugar if you want. I would prefer to make my own crusts but during Christmas when I make tons of cookies to give out I don't mind a shortcut, plus they are so pretty and taste great. There is also a great recipe called Strawberry Supreme Sauce on allrecipes and also a blueberry sauce by Isybel. Good Luck!

Thanks, Mary! I didn't even consider that I could buy frozen cherries. Where is my mind?? I'll look up those other recipes. Thank you!

Hi Marianne, Forget what I said about the cherry sauce recipe, I found a better one today on allrecipes. So simple and so good. It's called Cherry Pie Filling and the submitter is "mgiampeitro07" Only three ingredients and you can adjust the sugar if you want. When I make Janices Reesmans recipe for mini cheesecakes, I top them with 2 or 3 cherries each. Her recipe makes 48 ... not bad for 3 ingredients plus a box of vanilla wafers (about 80 per box) and some cherries for the top. Around here the Comstock brand of More Fruit Cherry pie filling is over $4 a can! When I make Chantel's N Y cheesecake, then I use the strawberry supreme sauce and serve it on the side. Both are delicious. I hope this all helps. Have a great Thanksgiving!

Mis-spoke ... again! LOL, The recipe has 5 ingredients. I forgot the eggs and vanilla. Still, it goes together in about 10 minutes. Darn, I can be so long-winded, lol!

Hi Marianne! What I like is a glaze found in the produce section of the grocery store. You add your own fresh fruit. I used it in the above recipe photo #3. Super yummy! Good luck!

Actually photo showing!

That's neat that it's in the produce section. I really should take some time to look around when I go shopping. Thanks, SHORECOOK!

Hi Marianne! You can use any berry, and add more cornstarch if you want ti a little thicker:

I just read about your turkeys, that's too bad, then again like you said it's only Monday. If you but frozen I would stick them in water for the day and finish in the fridge. Happy cooking! (((HUGS)))

Thanks, Celeste! I love the idea of the brandy in there. Maybe any liqueur, huh?!
