cheesecake cupcakes!


I have been so busy with family stuff that I haven’t been able to post this super awesome recipe in over a week!! Last week, my friends Dan and Alex had us over for dinner. They took care of dinner, so of course, I offered to bring dessert. Our dinner plans were for the Sunday before we left for our 18 hour drive to San Diego. By the time we were finished getting things together I absolutely did not want to bake anything, but I had made a commitment. I scoured my brain for easy recipes and decided cheesecake would be the easiest and being as I am a total cream cheese junkie, I had everything I needed here at home. I’m glad I was feeling lazy because otherwise, I nay not have made these cupcakes, and these cupcakes are seriously little bites of heaven.


What you need:

  • 12 nilla wafers
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup jam (I used strawberry)
  • powdered sugar to dust top

Preheat oven to 350. In a mixer, whip cream cheese until nice and fluffy. Continue mixing and add sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Beat well.

Line a muffin tray with liners and place one wafer in each cup, flat side down. Pour cheese mixture evenly into each cup.

Bake for 20 mins.

Cool cupcakes. Once cool, scoop 1/2 tsp of jam onto the top of each cake. Dust with powdered sugar.
