2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
cup sugar
2 eggs
tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
Heat oven to 350. Place one vanilla wafer on bottom of each paper-lined foil baking cup, 2 inches in diameter. In large mixer bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar. Blend well. Add in eggs and vanilla; beat well. Spoon one heaping tablespoon of the cheese mixture into each cup. Bake 15 minutes or just until set but not browned. (I usually only bake them for 11-12 minutes.) Let cool.

Then you can decorate them. You can put sliced almonds like a flower and melted chocolate in the middle (black-eyed susan cheesecakes). You can also mix something right into the cheese mixture before baking like peanut butter chips.

Personal Notes:
Abby loves these. These are great for a party. They are nice and small so people do not mind indulging. And you can decorate them for the occasion. Sometimes, I melt chocolate and put an amount in the middle...then I put a piece of fruit in the chocolate. Or, you can just keep them plain.
