Reddington's Red Cherry Tarts


Blacklist, Reddington
We are huge The Blacklist fans in our house. We started out watching it when it first started to air and expected it to be my like dramas. We watch a few episodes, get really bored and stop halfway through the first season. The Blacklist hasn't been like that at all for us. We can hardly wait until the next episode. These tarts remind me a little bit of Reddington because they are rich and delicious, but also a little sneaky with the ingredients. We love to mix up a batch before the show starts and there are rarely any afterward!

You will need:


  • 2 8-oz packages of cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • vanilla wafers
  • cupcake wrappers
  • cherry pie filling 

Mix together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and eggs together until very smooth. Add a wafer to the bottom of each muffin tin. Sometimes I make mini versions of these with a mini muffin tin and the wafers are the perfect size to fill the bottom.
Spoon the filling over the wafers until each cupcake wrapper is two thirds full of filling. This should take just about all of the filling you made.
Bake the tarts at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. It usually takes my oven on the longer side for these to be completely set. Wait for the cheesecakes to cool completely and then top with cherry pie filling for the perfect finishing touch.

These treats are easy and delicious!

Love your recipe! They look so delicious! I love cheesecake! Oh, and I love Blacklist, too! I think James Spader is the hottest man ever! He makes the perfect bad/good guy. His wit is also just perfect. I never miss an episode!

Never was too keen on cheesecake but boy cherries are amazing. Just tried the cherry pie from whole foods (vegan) it's so good! Got the apple for tomorrow!

LOVE these! I make them every year for our Christmas Eve party. They are delicious, and not too heavy...which means I eat more than I should!
