Special diet :
6 vanilla wafers
1 pkg (8 oz/225 g) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (50 mL) sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
1 large egg
6 ripe strawberries
1 to 2 tbsp (15-30 mL) strawberry or apple jelly
Preheat oven to 325°F (180°C). Line 6 muffin-pan cups with fluted aluminum-foil cupcake liners. Place one vanilla wafer in each cup. In a small bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Beat in egg until well mixed. Divide the cream-cheese mixture among the lined cups. Bake the cheesecake cups until they are just set, about 25 minutes. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes or until ready to serve.
If desired, just before serving, from the pointed end of each strawberry, make thin parallel cuts to the opposite end, being careful not to cut through the berry. Fan out each berry and place one on top of each cheesecake cup. (Alternatively, slice off the top of each strawberry and place them upside-down in the centre of each cheesecake.) In a small saucepan, heat jelly over low heat until it is melted. Brush some of the glaze over each berry. Serve immediately.
Makes 6 cheesecake cups.
