Awesome! The family loved that they were serving sized and they went very quickly! As for my adjustments, I'd suggest mixing the graham cracker crumbs with the sugar and sprinkling them into the cupcake cups. Then just put a pat of butter on top (before you add the cream cheese). The crust comes together perfectly on its own while they're in the oven. We loved it, and I will definitely make this again! Read More

had to do some tweaking after the first batch added 2 cups of sugar as i too thought it wasn't sweet enough, the time was too long, only baked them for 15min, i think you need to either use a food processor or hand blender for desired creamy texture as mine had big lumps that i couldnt get out. mine yielded close to 36 instead of 24. i made a raspberry compte and drizzeled with white chocolate and milk. it was pretty good. i called them raspberry truffle cheesecakes.

Very much like the recipe I used to make when I was younger. I always use the nilla wafer cookie at the bottom of the muffin tin and top with cherry pie filling. Yum! Read More

These were ok...my preference is that they should be a little bit sweeter. I also used a cherry pie filling instead of apples. I have a different recipe that I use...and I think I will stick with it....but thanks for the recipe post. Read More

This was SO quick and easy and a HUGE hit with everyone I shared them with. I very rarely follow a recipe exactly how it's written but I did with this one. I took the first batch out a little too soon and they turned out a little to custardy for my taste. The rest I baked for 35 min and they were perfect. Lots of people mentioned that they liked that they weren't too sweet but I don't imagine that adding a bit extra sugar would hurt it at all! It was also perfect for my kids too. Easy enough for them to help and they just LOVED them! This is definitely a keeper. (I have it memorized:) Read More

I used crushed nilla wafers for the crust. I made half the batch with cherry pie filling and the other half with teeny tiny chocolate chips. The nursing staff seemed to enjoy it. Read More

These are really delicious and are a huge hit at parties! The only reason I didn't give it 4 stars is because sometimes the cupcakes fall apart and/or get stuck to the cupcake liners. Read More
