Cream Cheese Cherry Tarts

        Sweet Week*****Sweet Week*****Sweet Week*****Sweet Week*****Sweet Week
I have so many dessert recipes that I decided to do a week of just desserts!   I will probably do this from time to time. 

On a Saturday morning in the fall of 2002, I was making breakfast and started flipping channels on the TV to find something for us to watch.  I flipped through a couple of shows and Phillip said I might like one that I had just passed.  It was Paula's Home Cooking and I commented to him that I don't know if I like her personality.  Phillip had been home since the summer recuperating from an accident and had seen her program several times.  He commented that I would like how she cooks.  I turned the channel back to Paula's Home Cooking and have been hooked ever since!  I fell in love with Paula, the way she cooks, her boys, and her wonderful town of Savannah. 

Cream Cheese Cherry Tarts is a recipe that I got from Paula Deen.  I watched her prepare them on her show and couldn't wait to try them at home.  I have made them for a wedding shower and all of the ladies at the shower loved them and left with a new recipe.  I have also made them for our family at Christmas.  It is an easy and delicious dessert.

                                                   Cream Cheese Cherry Tarts

2 - 8 oz. pkgs. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
12 Nilla Vanilla Wafers
1 - 21 oz. can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of muffin pan.  Beat cream cheese with a handheld electric mixer until fluffy.  Add sugar and vanilla, beating well.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Lay a vanilla wafer, flat side down, in each muffin cup.  Spoon cream cheese mixture over wafers.

Bake for 20 min.  Allow tarts to cool completely.  The tarts will sink in the middle.  Spoon pie filling into tart.
