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.

How to Make Cheesecake Muffins


  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.
