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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream room temperature cream cheese and sugar.
2
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
3
Slowly add cake flour, beating well after each addition.
4
Lightly grease the inside of the cupcake baking cups with cooking spray (this makes the final muffin pull out of the paper a lot easier).
5
Place wafer cookies in the bottom of cupcake baking cups in a 12 muffin pan.
6
Spoon an even amount of the mixture into each cupcake cup.
7
Top each muffin with a maraschino cherry.
8
Cook until a fork comes out clean and edges are golden brown.
