  1. DH said, "I'm glad the kids didn't like these." They are pretty darn good. I'd be tempted to add a few more raspberries next time because I love them. But that topping, mmmmm. I'm going to put that on zucchini muffins and on chocolate cupcakes! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
  2. Everybody loved this recipe Marie! I used light cream cheese only because it was what I had on hand and they turned out great. Thanks for posting. :-)
  3. I have now been using this recipe for several years after finding it on this website. Whatever occasion I bake it for, I always have people raving about these muffins - my now grown children still ask for them. The topping is particularly good. It is important to follow the recipe precisely for this one.
  4. This recipe should be called Raspberry Muffins. The "cheesecake" part is virtually non existent. Cannot taste any hint of cheese....3 oz of cream cheese for a dozen muffins is hardly anything.
  5. These taste great and have a good texture. I topped mine with a sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar. Thanks for sharing!


I live in upstate New York. I am retired and now have time to enjoy my children, my grandchildren and great grandchildren.
