Cheesecake cupcake.


Made these cupcakes for Thanksgiving dessert and it was yummmy...

Made these using this recipe and everybody loved it. It was the perfect size, not being too big, but still satisfying your craving for that smooth deliciousness...:)


I topped each with different toppings. I couldn't figure which topping to use, so I used caramel on some, strawberry on some and since we had these during Thanksgiving, I topped some with cranberry sauce too. I tried all different variations and I couldn't decide which one I liked better. I liked all the them..:).


For Cheesecake cupcake, you'll need:
--------------------------------------------
2 cup finely crushed graham crackers
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
7 Tbsp salted butter, melted
4 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
Caramel, strawberry or cranberry sauce to top the cupcakes


Directions:
-------------
For crust:
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together crushed graham crackers with 3 Tbsp granulated sugar.
- Add the melted butter and mix it all together.
- Divide this mixture among 24 lined muffin cups. Press this mixture down in each of the cups using the back of a small spoon.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 5 minutes.
- Then remove from the oven and let it cool down.

For filling:
- To prepare the filling, whisk together 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar with 3 Tbsp flour.
- Add the softened cream cheese and blend in low speed.
- Then add eggs one at a time and keep blending.
- Add vanilla, sour cream and heavy cream till just combined.
- Tap mixing bowl against the counter top to release some of the air bubbles.
- Pour this filling in the cups, over the prepared crust, filling each cup nearly full.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 20 minutes. Do not overbake, centers should be jiggly. If it starts to crack that means it is starting to overbake.
- Remove from oven and let it cool completely. Cover loosely with a plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator.
- Serve it chilled with a spoonful of caramel or strawberry sauce.

Enjoy!!

  12. Absolutely lovely, and one of our favorite things ever! I found the funniest thing recently making these---I got all the crumbs in the papers, then looked in vain for my little "Tassie" maker, for making tiny tart shells or crusts for little pecan pies. I opened a cabinet and reached in for the first thing I saw.

    Did you ever notice that a little Penzey's jar of spice is exactly the right size to tamp down the crust in one easy smooth move? Just a silly little discovery, for the few times that I do make these.

    These are also sublime with a top layer made of one recipe for lemon icebox pie---the one with the Eagle Brand milk.
