This was a hit at my party! I did alter it though. Instead of the cherry pie filling, I whipped whipping cream until it peaked. Added it on top with fresh berries.

Baking Fool- I've never done mini-mini cheesecakes. You might try putting a few of the mini vanilla wafers in the bottom or perhaps just break up a few of the larger cookies. The cheesecake filling does soften up the cookie so you won't notice really the change in shape. Good luck!

It was a hit! I used the mini vanilla wafers in mini-muffin papers.
