12 chocolate sandwich cookies with creme filling
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling
1/2 cup whipped topping
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Line muffin cups with paper or foil muffin liners.
Remove cookie top from each sandwich cookie; crush and set aside. Place cream-topped cookies in lined muffin cups, cream side up.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, baking cocoa, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy. Mix in eggs until blended. Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full; sprinkle 1/4 cup reserved cookie crumbs over top. Discard remaining crumbs or save for another use.
Bake in the preheated oven until set, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely; cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Top each cheesecake with 2 tablespoons pie filling and a dollop of whipped topping just before serving.
