Mini Cheesecakes

These are so quick and easy - perfect for showers and pitch-ins! I found a recipe but changed it. :)

1 c. crushed vanilla wafers
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh fruit - strawberries, kiwis, blueberries, whatever you like tossed with a little sugar and citrus juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line miniature muffin tins with miniature paper liners.

Place 1/2 teaspoon of the crushed vanilla wafers into each paper cup.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Fill each miniature muffin liner with this mixture, almost to the top.

Bake for 15 minutes. Cool. Top with fruit just before serving. Garnish with whip cream.
