Units Scale
  • 30 vanilla wafers
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • cherry pie filling


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a mixer cream together the cream cheese, sugar, eggs and lemon juice until smooth.  Set aside.
  3. Line a muffin tin with muffin cups.
  4. Add a vanilla wafer to the bottom of each cup.
  5. Fill the muffin cup about 3/4 full with the cream cheese batter.
  6. NOTE:  This recipe makes about 30 cupcakes, but you should bake them one tray at a time so they all bake evenly.
  7. Bake each tray separately for 20 – 22 minutes each.
  8. Let the cupcakes cool.  You will notice that the centres of the cupcakes will sink while they’re cooling, and that’s fine!
  9. When the cupcakes are cooled, add a scoop of cherry pie filling to the centre of each cupcake.
  10. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
