Cheesecake Cupcakes

I volunteered to make a dessert for a little gathering my manager was having for some co-workers and their spouses.  I wanted to make something really great, but it is so hard to bake during the week lately!  

My mom suggested making cheesecake cupcakes since they were so easy and delicious and she was right!   

(sorry, no pictures, I put the final touches on at my manager's house)

3 8 oz. packages cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3 eggs
Nabisco Vanilla Wafers
1 large can of and kind of pie filling (I used cherry)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream all of the ingredients (except wafers) together and beat for 5 minutes.  No less than 5 minutes.  Put wafers in the bottom of cupcake papers, rounded side down.  Fill papers about 3/4 full.

Bake at 350 for 18 minutes, no less.  Let cool completely.  (I actually made mine the night before and stored them in the fridge until serving).  Top with fruit pie filling...I used 2-3 cherries on each cupcake.

Makes around 20-24.
