Rated 3 out of 5 by from TOO MUCH COOKIE! TOO MUCH COOKIE! Oh my goodness, I felt like I didn't have any cheesecake with all that cookie crust. And I didn't even use all 40, was working on a leftover box and only had 28. Also baking times are OFF! Shaved at least 10 minutes on baking and then when I left it to sit in the oven with the door ajar it burned the back half of my cheesecakes! :( Really disappointed with all of that. However, the actual cheesecake flavor was pretty good though.

Unlike the other reviewer, I had more than enough crust recipe-I counted out 40 Nilla wafers and followed the recipe to the "t". What I found was that there was not adequate cheesecake filling-it ended up tasting like a cream cheese frosted lemon vanilla cookie rather than a creamy little cheesecake bite. I used standard muffin tins lined with muffin cups. I would not recommend this recipe.
