Calories 400kcal


  • 5 to 6 amaretto cookies or any almond shortbread cookies, crushed
  • 1 tbl butter, melted
  • 2 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp almond extract or Amaretto liqueur
  • 1/4 tsp imitation cherry extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 15 oz can of cherry pie filling or fresh strawberries
  • 12 cupcake baking foil liners


  • Line muffin tin with 12 foil cupcake liners.
  • In a bowl, combine melted butter with crushed cookies. Fill each cupcake liner with enough of the cookie mixture to cover the bottom. Press down on the cookie mixture to make sure it is firmly packed on the bottom.
  • Mix cream cheese, almond extract, cherry extract and sugar in a bowl with a blender on medium speed until well blended.
  • Add eggs. Mix well. Pour mixture into cupcake liners over crushed cookies, filling them 3/4 full. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.
  • When completely cooled, remove cheesecakes from pan and chill. The cupcake liners can be removed at this time, if you wish. Top each cheesecake with a teaspoon of cherry pie filling and maybe a squirt of whipped cream and serve.


TIP: Use your imagination when topping these little beauties. I have used toppings such as blueberries, chopped Hershey's chocolate kisses, chopped pistachios and powdered sugar to name a few. You can create your own signature toppings.
