The Cheese Filling

  • Using a low speed in your mixer, mix cream cheese until just creamy. While mixing, gradually add in sugar. Then add in eggs 1 by 1, mixing just until well combined.
  • Then add in vanilla extract, lemon juice, flour and mix again just until combined. Finally add in sour cream and mix everything together.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, divide the cheesecake filling evenly into prepared muffin pan. Gently shake the pan to make the top surface flat.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 320ºF (160ºC) for 15 minutes or when you gently shake the pan, the cheesecake wiggle a bit and the center look not as set.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool to room temperature in the pan. Place the pan in the fridge overnight.

  2. It's easier to remove the cheesecakes from the pan after they're chilled in the fridge.
