Cherry Cheese Tarts

This is a great recipe for Shavuot when it's customary to eat dairy!

1 8-ounce cream cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup sugar
1 cup ground nuts or graham cracker crumbs
1/3 stick melted butter or margarine
3 tablespoons sugar
1 can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease or use vegetable spray on tart pans. Blend cream cheese with egg, vanilla and ¼ cup sugar. Set aside. Mix ground nuts (or crumbs) with butter and 3 tablespoons sugar. Press crumbs on bottom of tart pans. Fill evenly with cheese mixture. Bake till set (about 15-20 minutes). Remove from oven and allow to cool. Spread a few cherries on the top before serving. Makes 12 Mini tarts.
