Recipe from 500 Cupcakes by Fergal Connolly.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup (4 1/2 oz.) graham cracker crumbs
5 tbsp. sweet butter, melted
2 cups ricotta cheese
2 cups cream cheese, softened
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
3 eggs
cherry topping
mini chocolate chips
Oreo cookies


Preheat the oven to 325'F (160'C). Place 24 paper baking cups in a muffin pan.

Put the cracker crumbs into a medium bowl and stir in the butter. Spoon tablespoons of the crumb mixture into the cups, pressing firmly into the bottom. Chill until set.

Optional: Scrape the cream out of Oreo cookies and place half in the bottom of each cup.

In a large bowl, beat the ricotta until smooth. Add the cream cheese, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar, blending until smooth. Slowly add the eggs, blending well. Spoon the mixture into the cups.

Optional: Drop mini chocolate chips on top of each cupcake before baking.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Then remove the cupcakes and cool on a rack. Chill until time to serve.

Optional: Before serving, spoon cherry topping on cooled cupcakes.

Keep refrigerated.
