TOPPING

Recipe by: Sue Klapper In a bowl, combine crumbs and butter. Press gently into the bottom of 12 paper-lined muffin cups. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla, lemon juice, sugar and egg; beat until smooth. Spoon into crusts. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Cool completely. Drain cherries, reserving ½ cup juice in a saucepan; discard remaining juice. To juice, add cherries, sugar, cornstarch, and food coloring if desired. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; boil for 1 minute. Cool; spoon over cheesecakes. Chill for at least 2 hours.
