Reddington's Red Cherry Tarts
These Cherry Tarts are rich and delicious, but also a little sneaky with the ingredients. You wont guess what's being used as the crust.
Keyword: dessert, Food, Recipe
- 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.
