Tasty Tuesday- Cheesecake Cupcakes

I am linking up for Tasty Tuesday!  This is one of my most favorite treasured recipes.  My grandmother used to make these and they have remained one of our family favorites!


  • 3 8 oz packages of cream cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

Begin by setting out cream cheese and eggs to get to room temperature. When they are at room temperature combine with all cheesecake ingredients and mix with a hand mixer until well blended.  Spoon mixture into cupcake holders. Fill about 2/3 way full. Cook on 300 for 40 min.

Let cool for five minutes.

Combine icing mixture in a large bowl and mix until well blended. Spoon about a teaspoon onto each cupcake. Bake for five more minutes at 300.  Let cool completely before serving!

I made these for Christmas by using food coloring! They were so yummy!
