Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

I first had these at my friend Sarah's holiday ornament exchange a couple of years ago. I had brought some home for C to have because she had so many wonderful treats leftover. He went crazy for these, so I had to get the recipe from her. The original calls for vanilla wafers and canned pie filling, so I have changed it up with the graham crackers since they feel more cheesecake-y to me and I used fresh strawberries since they are so gorgeous this time of year. These were a hit for Father's Day.
Mini Cheesecakes
makes 48

½ cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 squares)
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
¾ cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line miniature muffin tins with miniature paper liners.

Place ½ teaspoon of the graham cracker crumbs into each paper cup.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Fill each miniature muffin liner with this mixture, almost to the top.

Bake for 15 minutes. Cool. Top each with a fresh strawberry quarter.
