Do you have a recipe for mini cheesecakes?

Chocolate Cheesecake Cups

Chocolate Chip Base

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 6 ounce package chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars together. Stir in egg and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, baking powder and salt and blend. Stir in chocolate chips.

Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. Place 1 tablespoon of the base in each muffin cup.

Cheesecake Filling

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1 can cherry pie filling

Beat softened cream cheese with butter thoroughly until smooth. Add sugar and beat well. Add eggs and vanilla and blend thoroughly. Add flour and stir until well combined. Top base with cream cheese mixture, filling muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until tops are light brown. Cool slightly and serve while warm. Top each with a spoonful of cherry pie filling. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

You will probably have some base dough left over. Guess what - it's chocolate chip cookie dough! Just chill it, well covered, and bake cookies some other time for a fast treat. (375 degrees for 8-10 minutes)
