    Such an easy recipe, and you can totally change up the topping. I’m toying topping with caramel and a sea salt flakes for a salted caramel. But the cherry are always a hit. I use ginger snaps in lieu of the vanilla wafers.

    I am making these for the second time! I only put topping on half of them last time, they are very rich and delicious! I have six children and when we make desserts there never seems to be enough but with this one we had extras.

    These were so easy and delicious! I will definitely be making them again. I cut the recipe in half to try, filled each a little fuller, and got nine individual cheesecakes.I topped mine with fresh strawberries, but will use the pie filling next time. Since cheesecake is so rich, small one like these are just right after a meal or anytime.
