📋 Ingredients:

🥣 Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Press a tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup to form the crust.

  4. Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the crust in each muffin cup, filling nearly to the top.
  5. Drop a spoonful of cherry pie filling on top of each cupcake.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the edges are set and the centers only slightly jiggle.
  7. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
