Cheesecake Cupcakes

Back to baking so soon? Yes, well, a perfect meal isn't complete without a perfect dessert. And perfect does not do justice to these delicious mini cheesecakes. 

Not only were they easy to make, but they were fluffy and moist, and the flavor was just right. One bite of them was true indulgence.

For the crust:
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon of packed light brown sugar

For the cheesecake:
12 oz, cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
2 eggs
a pinch of vanilla powder
1 can of cherry pie filling (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a muffin pan with foil or paper liners.

For the crust: In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and brown sugar. Press crumb mixture into bottom of prepared baking cups.

For the cheesecake: Using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar, beating until smooth. Add sour cream, and beat until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until smooth. Remember, you dont want to over beat the mixture, you just want it to be smooth.

Scoop filling over crust in baking cups. Bake in preheated oven for 18- 22 minutes. (Mine took 20 minutes) 

Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Before serving, place a dollop of cherry filling over the top of each cupcake. Or you can serve them plain.

  5. Mmmm I love cheesecake cuppies! :D

    The dulce de leche is what makes the brownies gooey. Without it, they'd still probably be pretty rich. If you want them to be fudgier, just take them out a minute early. Otherwise, they're kinda a cross between cakey and fudgy! :)


  7. These look amazing! With the amounts listed, how many were you able to make?

  8. Hey I made these tonight but because of YOU not listing how many it makes I forgot to put the egg in. :( You suck.

    Hi Mimi, (I hope I am getting this right...)
    This recipe is obviously on my Must-Bake list and is PURE AWESOME! Wat I don't understand is the fact that the ingredient list always comes out glitchy and I really can't tell what is going on.(This has happened whenever I come on this same page)
    Could you please have a look into it. Thnx! D:
