    Use fancy cupcake liners, and these look special, taste great, and are quick and easy. Great for a holiday treat. We like cherry best, but any berry fruit filling works well (blueberry, strawberry, etc.)

    I made these at Christmas, and they were gone in two seconds! Absolutely fabulous…

    This recipe was missing something. The batter was very thin and the end result was not the consistency of a cheescake and didn’t really set. Wouldn’t use this recipe again.

    I have used this recipe many times and these are great. Everybody loves them and they disappear quickly.

    I followed this to the T And I agree something is missing? And why do I have pm much left over mix? And the consistency is like thin cottage cheese mix not a cheesecake texture.. really confused

      They should be just like little cheesecakes when cooked… topped w/ the cherry topping.
