Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes feature a white cupcake topped with cheesecake filling and strawberry pie filling to make a simple and delicious treat!

Lee was on the blog the other day, looking at all the recipes. When he noticed that there were only two cupcake recipes he said, “I think you need more cupcake recipes on the blog”. So, I added Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes, just for him!

I’m thinking he just wanted some cupcakes. And because I post regularly, he knew it wouldn’t be too long before I would be making them.

I don’t mind though, because cake is one of my favorite foods. Okay, so I have a lot of favorite foods, not all of them are dessert.

Extra-ordinary cupcakes, that are easy, are right up my alley. So I thought, why not top the cupcakes with cheesecake and pie filling?

I guess these are what you would call semi-homemade. Totally fine by me (Lee, too)!

Cupcakes are awesome for a couple of reasons:

  • They cool fast, which means you can frost them and eat them sooner.
  • You can just grab one and eat it, no cutting, fork or plate required.

I see many more recipes like this in our future, and we couldn’t be happier. I mean, the possibilities for toppings and fillings are nearly endless.

Canned pie filling is an awesome product because there are so many ways to use it, other than pie. Not that it isn’t fabulous in pie too.

I use it on my Peach Pie Thumbprint Cookies (one of Lees favorite recipes on this blog), and the topping on my Black Forest Poke Cake.

Oh, and I can’t forget these Blackberry Crescent Rolls. The one thing all of these recipes have in common is that they are super easy, and sooooo yummy!

    I’m not big on dessert (mainly because I’m not a huge chocolate fan), but I can never resist a cheesecake recipe. I’ll have to try these yummy cupcakes with my family!
