We had a nice, relaxed family get-together yesterday, and I wanted an easy dessert that I was pretty sure *most* of us would like. These little cakes are so stupid-easy, and for something so simple, they still taste like delicious indulgence.
- 2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, room temperature
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 TBS fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 18 vanilla wafers
- jam of your choice for topping, if desired
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line cupcake pans with 18 paper baking cups. Place a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each cup. Beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla extract together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with cream cheese mixture and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Cool 15 minutes on a rack, then refrigerate until ready to serve. Top with jam, if desired.
How easy is that?!?
