Holiday Cheesecake Cups

Holiday Cheesecake Cups

This recipe is from Canadian Living. These cups are great for any holiday; they taste very creamy and cheesy. My favorite cake is cheesecake, but it is even better in cupcake form! Serve them with berries, whipped cream or anything to your liking; they’ll sill taste great!


1-1/4 cups (300 mL) graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, melted
3 pkgs (250 g each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (250 mL) sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) sour cream
3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
Fresh fruits or berries


1. Heat oven to 325 degrees farenheit.

2. Double line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. In small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter. Press about 1 tbsp (15 mL) of mixture onto bottom of each cup.

3. In large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy; gradually beat in the 1 cup (250 mL) of sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in 1 tsp (5 mL) of the vanilla extract and 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the sour cream. Divide mixture among prepared muffin cups.

4.. Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Combine remaining 1 cup (250 mL) sour cream, the 3 tbsp (45 mL) of sugar and remaining 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract; spread over cheesecake cups. Bake 5 minutes longer. Cool in pan on wire rack. Chill.

To serve, remove cheesecakes from cups and top with fresh fruits or berries.
