  • packages of cream cheese 2 8 oz
  • Large Eggs 2
  • of Vanilla 1 teaspoon
  • Sea Salt ½ teaspoon
  • of Sugar ¾ cup of sugar (If you like them a little sweeter) ½ Cup

Crust Ingredients

  • of butter Slices
  • Crushed vanilla wafers


  • In an electric mixer, mix together using the paddle attachment both packages of cream cheese, both eggs, all the sugar, salt & vanilla.
  • Once combine, scrape down the side walls of the mixer. Then switch the paddle attachment to the whipping attachment and mix for one minute.

Building the cheesecakes

  • Layout cupcake papers on cookie sheet, place the vanilla wafer crumbs in the bottom. Add however much you like. Place a small pat of butter on top. Then fill with the cheesecake filling.


  • Preheated oven 325. Bake on the middle rack in your oven. Check after 10 minutes. They are done once the tops of the cheesecakes start to brown. Yet, we are not looking for much color on top, if any.
