Mini Apple Crisp Cheesecakes

Here it is, Saturday and fridge clean out day was a couple of days ago.  I found some leftovers of this and that and decided I should find a way to use it up.  I had some cream cheese filling from my butter braid, along with some apple pie filling.  I still had wonton wrappers in the freezer that needed used up.  Can you get where I am going with this?

I have had such a busy few days that I haven't even had time to blog these amazing little gems.  I love busy, I really do.  You won't ever hear me complain about being "to busy".  A weekend full of nieces and nephews and sisters, can't find a thing to complain about there!!

Here we go...this recipe makes 12.  I hope you enjoy!!  Great little mini sized food gets me all giddy inside.  Great for portion control and fun to eat!

Mini Apple Crisp Cheesecakes
24 wonton wrappers  (2 for each cup)
4 ounces cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract (use a bean if you have one, scrap down the inside and add it)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cup apple pie filling (yep, straight from the can kids)
1/2 cup instant oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp melted butter

Preheat oven to 375 and spray your muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray, inside and on the top surface.  Taking 2 wontons at a time, gently push them down into the tins.

Repeat for all 12 cups.  Set aside and in a small bowl combine cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar, and egg.  Blend until completely smooth.  Using a teaspoon, divide the filling between all 12 wonton cups evenly.

Do the same with the apple pie filling.  When you have filled the wonton cups with both fillings, set aside and prepare crumb topping.

In a small bowl combine instant oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter.  Using your fingers or a spoon combine and top all of the cups with the topping.  Put in the oven and bake 12-15 minutes.  Let cool completely and remove from the pan.

Enjoy these!!!  I sure did!

Have a wonderful weekend friends!  Thank you all for your support and please, invite your friends, or anyone who loves cooking!!  There is always room for more friends in my kitchen!!
