Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes

{Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes}

Today I made cherry cheesecake cupcakes for the first time! I found lots of recipes and decided to try to formulate my own little recipe. This made 10 cupcakes, now that they are done I see that I should have filled the cups fuller. If you fill the cups to the top this recipe should make 6 cupcakes. 
  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Line a cupcake pan with cupcake papers

  • Crumbs from 20 vanilla wafer cookies (I use the food processor to crush them)
  • 1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter (melted) 
  • 8oz Cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/4 Cup of plain yogurt
  • Can of cherry pie filling (or any pie filling that would be good on cheesecake!)

Directions for crust-
1.     Mix the crumbs, sugar and butter in a bowl until combined. Take a tablespoon worth of the crust mixture and put it into each cupcake cup. 
2.     Press the crust mixture down and pack it firmly.
3.     Bake for 8-10 minutes, remove and let cool
Directions for filling-
1.     Beat the cream cheese until smooth
2.     Add the yogurt, egg and vanilla
3.     Bake for 15-20 minutes, until sides are set but the center should still wiggle around when you shake the cupcake pan. 

Here they are in the cups!

Finished product, yummy!

To me this isn't really the cupcake I was hoping for, it is more of a mini cheesecake; that being said, it was delicious! I would make it again if I am ever looking for a individual serving cheesecake. It could be fun to make these for some kind of a house party and then have different fruit toppings for people to choose from to make their own little dessert!

So here is my rating for this one- 

I give this recipe 1 1/2 cupcakes because it while it wasn't what I would consider a real cupcake, it was good!
