These bite size cheese cakes are some of my favorite treats, but because of their dairy content I don't make them often. I took them to a party and they were gone before we started dinner.
They are perfect for Spring.
You will need:
- 1 box mini Nilla Wafers
- 1 package cream cheese (at room temp.)
- 1 tub Cool Whip (thawed)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 package mini baking cups
Pan Number One.
Pan Number 2!
Pop 'em in the fridge. Let them cool for a few hours.
You may have some filling left. It is SOOO good as a dip. Also, there are ways to make this healthier--use lite Cool Whip, lite Cream Cheese, and there may even be lite Nilla wafers. Also, you could add food coloring to the mix and make them OH SO festive.
I got the original recipe here. But I like it better on the mini wafers and the extra cool whip was just extra work and I'm not a huge lover of coconut.
Let me know if you try them.
