Did you know you could have cheesecake in a cupcake size? Well, you can! This mini size is the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth and still keep your pants buttoned.
Each delicious cupcake treat begins with a vanilla wafer crust, a smooth cheesecake middle and a scoop of cherry pie filling for the top. The combination is a dream come true for your taste buds!
