Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
* I make individual cakes with this recipe using Nilla wafers as the crust. Buy metal cupcake liners and place a Nilla in the bottom of each one. Make the cheesecake mixture & pour over the wafers, filling cups halfway. Bake 20-30 mins. until set and cool. Spoon one tsp full of fruit filling on top of each one.
