Cheesecake Cupcakes

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Audrey M

This cheesecake is low in points. It is only 4 WW points. You have to let this dessert refrigerate for 24 hours before you can enjoy it but it is well worth the wait.

This recipe took me several tweaks before I was happy with it. I don't know if it was because I used fresh lemon extract (purchased only for this recipe), but the lemon was overpowering. I omitted it altogether. Also, place an oven proof bowl with water in the oven while baking/cooling the cupcakes. This will keep them from looking like shriveled up stuff in a cupcake wrapper. Other than that, very moist.
