  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 8 oz packages cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 can cherry pie filling


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Fill 18 muffin tins with foil-lined wrappers. The wrappers with the inside foil lining peel better from this dessert.
  • In a medium bowl stir together melted butter and graham cracker crumbs until mixed.
  • Press about 1 tablespoon of graham cracker crumb and butter mixture in the bottom of each cupcake wrapper.
  • In a large bowl beat cream cheese with white sugar until smooth. Scrape down sides of bowl often.
  • Beat in eggs until well mixed. Again, scraping down sides of bowl often.
  • Beat in sour cream, vanilla, and flour until well mixed.
  • Scoop cheesecake mixinto each cupcake wrapper. Fill until each is filled to about a 1/2 of an inch from the top. They will rise a bit while baking so don’t overfill.
  • Baking 20 to 25 minutes. They’re done when still just slightly jiggly in the middle.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes before placing in fridge to cool completely. These will need to cool in fridge for at least two hours before serving.
  • Top each with a scoop of cherry pie filling before serving.
