  • 2 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 vanilla wafers (Cut 2 wafers edges of to fit one liner)
  • Zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 21 oz can fruit filling


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place a 2" cupcake liner in each cup of a muffin pan.
  • Beat cream cheese with mixer until fluffy. Add sugar, vanilla extract, beat well to combine.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beat well after each.
  • Fold in the lemon juice and lemon zest.
  • Cut off 1/4 of the wafer, and arrange two in the bottom of each muffin liner.
  • Spoon the mixture on top of the wafers.
  • Bake 40 minutes, turn the pan around halfway through.
  • Remove from pan, place on a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Store in fridge, top with filling right before serving.
  • Note - The centers may sink in once they've cooled. Don't worry! You're filling the center with the fruit filling, so nobody will be able to tell if it sinks in.
