These are delicious mini strawberry cheesecakes! A friend gave me this recipe and as I love muffins, cheesecakes... and strawberries - just had to try it! I didn't have any fresh lemons so I used lemon extract - can't wait to make them again!

I doubled up the recipe, and added only a 1/2 tsp of baking powder instead of two in a double recipe. I also added some dried strawberries 16 ounces of them. These were a great hit. Came out perfect. High tops, each bite was filled with cheesecake and strawberries. You can never have enough strawberries! Next time I think I will top them with a fudgey sauce. Hm definately a keeper recipe.. Thanks a ton redsie!
