Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, it is also our 39th anniversary. I love cheesecake, but a large one is more than I need to be tempted by. This recipe is for a dozen cupcake size cheesecakes, using an Oreo cookie for a crust. They are easy to make and great to share.
Mini-cheesecakes: Beat together 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Add 2 eggs and mix until just blended. Place an oreo cookie in the bottom of 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Top with the cream cheese mixture. Bake 20 min. at 350 degrees or until centers are almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours. Top with your raspberries, blueberries, kiwi slices or strawberry slices before serving.
