      These taste great and are a nice light muffin. Since I had problems preparing them, I had to lower the stars. The batter is more like a wettish dough and not easy to get into the muffin tin. I only had enough dough for about 10 or 11 muffins but had enough cheesecake filling for about 18 muffins. The preserves barely made it through 12 muffins. I found that the filling spilled over and made a mess of the oven. The pan was no fun cleaning either (luckily I got to it before everything hardened!). I did dig the muffins out of the tin before they preserves hardened them to the tin. If I made these again I would use less dough on the bottom. Made for PAC April 2009.

      These muffins are really good! The batter is VERY thick. Almost more like a scone or biscuit batter than a muffin batter. It works though. The filling is cheesecake like once baked and is so delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!
