We have made so many great cheesecakes over the years. If you like the tiny bite-sized version, after this go take a peak at the Oreo Crust Mini Cheesecakes and the No-Bake Cheesecake Bites. Maybe even make all of them!

How To Make Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes

  1. Crust. Stir the crust ingredients and press into the cupcake liners.
  2. Cheesecake layer. Beat the cheesecake ingredients together and pour over crust.
  3. Bake. Cook until the tops start to brown; just under 20 minutes.
  4. Top. Add a scoop of cherry pie filling on top and enjoy!

Tip: Don’t overfill the cupcake liners because you don’t have any room left for the cherries.

You could get creative if you want to, and switch up the topping flavors. Oh! A fun idea might be to make each cupcake a different flavor! Just walk through the baking section of your grocery store and pick out a few pie fillings.

Heck, these are also really good plain if you want to skip the fruit altogether.

However you serve these, they will definitely be a huge hit.
