Cheesecake Muffins

Made this recipe off hand because I couldn't find a good "mini-cheese cake" recipe. The mini-cheese cakes ended up more like muffins, less dense than traditional cheese cake. Taste similar to a danish.

Prep:
15 Min
Cook:
25 Min

Ingredients

8 oz
cream cheese
1 c
white sugar
1/2 tsp
vanilla
4
eggs
1/2 c
cake flour
12
vanilla wafer cookies (like nilla wafers)
12
stemless maraschino cherries

Step-By-Step

1Cream room temperature cream cheese and sugar.

2Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.

3Slowly add cake flour, beating well after each addition.

4Lightly grease the inside of the cupcake baking cups with cooking spray (this makes the final muffin pull out of the paper a lot easier).

5Place wafer cookies in the bottom of cupcake baking cups in a 12 muffin pan.

6Spoon an even amount of the mixture into each cupcake cup.

7Top each muffin with a maraschino cherry.

8Cook until a fork comes out clean and edges are golden brown.
