And the pumpkin saga continues with these cheesecake cupcakes!
Cheesecake cupcakes are a miniature, mess-free, portable version of regular cheesecake. I'd love to also describe them as built in portion control, but they're so easy to eat that they're actually the opposite of portion control. You blink once and you've eaten the entire batch.
Especially THESE cheesecake cupcakes. Their crust is packing a punch of cinnamon flavor and their batter has a perfectly spiced pumpkin swirl in the middle AND on top.
I must warn you that it is easier to overbake cheesecake cupcakes, so make sure you keep an eye on them and take them out when they are just nearly set. If you see them start to crack, take them out! That's a sign that they're well on their way to becoming overbaked.
As long as you follow those rules, you'll end up with smooth, creamy, flavorful cheesecake that is to die for. No really, you will catch a grenade for these cupcakes.
And jump in front a train for them too.
