Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

My sweet friend and fellow Diner, Kahri, just gave me a gorgeous, handcrafted gift. I couldn't wait to make something pretty to show it off. Isn't that doily in the picture with the Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins beautiful? I cannot crochet, knit, or even keep count to do cross stitch, so I am in awe at the beautiful work she does. It is even more amazing that she does this as well as care for four kids! I am not too sure my muffins are worthy, especially since the whipped cream kept melting on me. That's summer in Oklahoma.

Pretty or not, these little cheesecakes are very easy to assemble and my guys loved them. The recipe is slightly altered from my usual recipe in the e-book, so I'll give it to you here.

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

8 ounces cream cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar substitute
2 Tablespoons Vanilla DaVinci Syrup
8 drops Capella strawberries and cream flavor drops (may substitute 1/2 teaspoon extract)
2 strawberries

Soften cream cheese and dice strawberries finely. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix with a hand mixer. Pour into sprayed muffins cups and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. When cooled, invert onto a plate and top with whipped cream. Optional: drizzle with strawberry or raspberry syrup.

Oh, these look yummy. I think I will try my hand at making some tomorrow....although mine will be slightly different. I didn't get the strawberry and cream flavoring. I will get to play around with different flavors and see what I come up with.
