    Love these little treats! Instead of currants, I used three varieties of toppings/flavors: Oreo cookies; blueberries with lemon zest; graham crackers. Perfect bites without feeling guilty. Great for parties.

    By the way, I also pressed a graham cracker crust about 1/3" thick into the bottom of each cupcake liner. Who wants cheesecake without crust? Odd! I would suggest a smaller portion into each cup. Possibly 1/4 cup. Plus, I'm going to top with blueberry and strawberry pie filling/desert topping. I hope they're delicious once all is said and done. Fingers crossed! I'm still nervous they won't be cooked through! After all, this is my boyfriend's birthday cake! Please be good!!!!!

    The recipe says portion the batter equally into 48 liners using 4 oz. per cupcake. This number is WAY off! 4 oz. = 1/2 cup. I used a 12 cup muffin pan and a 8 cup pan for the first batch (20 total), trying to go by 1/2 cup per cupcake. I baked for the recommended 15 mins, followed by a heaping tablespoon of the sour cream mixture. This was also way too much! I had barely enough batter left for my next round of 20 cupcakes. I hope they're cooked! I barely got 40 cupcakes using these measurements.

    Martha is simultaneously baking her Mini Cheesecakes with Cherry Topping which are placed in a Bain Marie. Hope this helps.

    In the video, you see Martha put something in the oven with the cupcakes (looks like a pan with water, but then she says specifically that you don't need a water bath). Anyone know what it is and why?

    This little cupcakes are heaven. They are so thick and rich you feel like you had a big piece of cheesecake. The sour cream topping really takes them over the top. I cut the receipe by a 1/3 and only made 12 cupcakes for a small party. They were delicious! Thanks Martha.
