  3. In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs, lemon juice, and sugar. Beat until smooth and thoroughly combined.

  4. Fill each baking cup 2/3 full with cream cheese mixture.

Cook's Note:

These are great to give away during the holidays! For a pretty presentation, you can top them with cherry or any flavor pie filling. Garnish each one with a rosette of sweetened cream cheese or whipped cream right before serving.
