MOM’S (ROSE’S) BITE-SIZED CHEESE CAKES
(I’ve kept this recipe since I was in St. Margaret’s Grammar School. My mother and I used to make these two-bite cheese cakes for every one of their numerous bake sales.)
¾ cups sugar
2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
Box of vanilla wafers
- Beat all ingredients until fluffy. Place a vanilla wafer in lined cupcake pan (use small liners).
- Fill 2/3 full with cheese mixture.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees.
- When cool, top with a spoon of pie filling.*
*Or whatever you’d like to top the cheesecakes with. For the Dancefest, I used a dollop of lemon curd and 3-4 fresh blueberries because it was blueberry season. Sliced strawberries would work or any kind of fresh berry or even fruit jam.
