Ingredients

  • 6 large strawberries
  • 12 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • ¼ Cup sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 Cup sour cream

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Cut the strawberries in half lengthwise, then cut a heart shape out of each half using the heart-shape cookie cutter.

Place mini paper liners in a mini muffin pan, then push a vanilla wafer cookie into the bottom of each liner.

Mix the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until well blended. Add the egg and sour cream; mix well. Top the cookies with the mixture using a small ice cream scoop.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes, then cool completely in the pan. Remove and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Top with a strawberry heart for a lovely finish.

Cheesecake Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Cheesecake Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
