Sweet Mini Cheesecakes


          I truly like eating goodies that are bite size...to me bite size means you don't have to
        count calories, right ? Well, these darling cheesecakes are a breeze to whip up and
        you only need to eat  2, 5 or 6. I won't tell. The best part of these are the chocolate
        wafer crust. Today was pretty gloomy out and I could not set up a good shot for a pic
        to save my life... Enjoy and make for LOVE-day.

                                                           Sweet Mini Cheesecakes

         2 packages cream cheese, softened
         1 cup sugar
         2 large eggs
         1/2 cup sour cream
         1 tablespoon flour
         1/2 teaspoon food coloring
         whipped cream

         Crust
         2 1/4 cups chocolate wafer cookies, crushed
         1/4 cup sugar
         1/2 cup butter, melted
         1 egg white, lightly beaten

       1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
       2) In a small bowl, combine crushed cookies, sugar, melted butter and egg white,
       stir well. Press mixture into bottom and halfway up sides of 24 miniature muffin
       tin or cheesecake pans. Bake for 8 min.
       3) To prepare filling. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar on medium speed
      until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in
      sour cream, flour and food coloring, if desired.
       4) Spoon batter into prepared crusts and bake for about 15 min.
                   Note...you will have extra filling....eat with a spoon ; )
