Recipe: Mini Cherry Cheesecakes

Last night a few friends (and fellow True Blood fans) came over for a Season 4 Premier viewing party. I had grand schemes of serving beignets as an ode to the Louisiana locale where the show takes place but was told that reheated beignets would be a failure. I had promised guests dessert, and dessert I would the form of mini cherry cheesecakes! 

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla
8 mini cheesecake crusts
Canned cherry pie filling

Beat cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla until creamy and without lumps. Spoon equal amount into cheesecake crusts. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. When cool, top with cherries and refrigerate until ready to serve.
