cup cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 ColorKitchen color packet

Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, pour melted butter into graham cracker crumbs and mix. Take a small spoonful of mix and put into the bottom of 18 paper-lined mini muffin cups. Press crust gently with fingers.

In another small bowl, take warm (room temp) cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and stir until smooth. Add egg and mix on low speed for just a minute. Take a spoonful and pour on top of crusts so that the cups are 3/4 full.
