    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    I'm not sure where I originally got this recipe but I just recently tried it myself. Since the batter is more like a dough, I found it incredibly hard to layer in the muffin tins as described. Next time I'm going to use my springform pan and make a layered coffeecake instead and bake it for about 50 minutes.

      FanTAStic!! I took these to work today and they were scarfed up immediately. The sweet tartness of the cherries, the creamy smoothness of the cheese, and the light texture of the biscuit base combine to make something close to the perfect muffin!

      Absolutely the best !!! Can't wait to try it with peaches or blueberry's or...everything else !! Thank you so much for a great recipe. I did not have cream cheese or jam, used instead a can of cherry pie filling and made a glaze of powdered sugar, butter & almond extract......holy cow...can't stay away from it...thanks again !!

      Oh Marg! This was absolutely delicious!! The muffin in the picture looked sooo tempting that I had to give it a shot! I took your advice and made it in an 8 inch springform pan. My bake time was of 65 minutes. My topping was alot more crumbly than the one in the picture, so next time I might increase the butter- and there WILL be a next time! Also, I substituted yogurt for the sour cream. All in all this cake was to die for!! My whole family inhaled it. Thanks for a winner Marg! :)
