"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave?" - Kathleen Kelly (You've Got Mail)

Mini Cheesecakes

18 Nilla Wafers
2 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
2/3 c. white sugar
4 tbsp. sour cream
2 eggs
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. vanilla
Fresh fruit (optional) 

Preheat oven to 350 and line a regular sized muffin tin with paper liners and place a Nilla Wafer in the bottom of each one and set aside. Combine the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add sour cream and eggs, mix well. Then add the lemon juice and vanilla. Make sure the mixture is really well combined! Fill each liner 3/4 of the way full. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until center is no longer liquidy. Remove from oven and cool completely. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Once chilled, top with fresh fruit if desired. Makes 18 mini cheesecakes.
