Are you prepared to satisfy the sweet tooth of a large party on a last-minute notice? Few recipes can make you look like a seasoned pro and a master baker with less than an hour’s work. These bite-sized, peach cheesecake muffins look and taste like lots of work.
Don’t tell anyone you made them half an hour before bedtime.
Everyone loves cheesecake, a quintessential All-American treat. Muffins are crowd pleasers too; there’s something about unwrapping the little cheesecake bites that make you feel like a kid on Christmas day.
Peaches are just fancy, especially when in season (at its peak in July and August.) Put everything together, and you’ll end up with the single most attractive piece of heaven you can make.
Is there such a thing as the perfect dessert?
What goes into baking peach cheesecake bites?
There’s a catch.
Preparing individual desserts might take a little more time than you’d expect, especially if you struggle to handle small objects; cupcake wrappers tend to misbehave.
Prepping each cheesecake bite might make you feel you’re making ten desserts instead of one. But hey, it’s time to make the whole family a part of it, a few extra hands, even if small, will make the chore an easy breeze.
There’s good news too, these peach cheesecake bites can be baked in advance and will keep for days in the fridge. No need to rush at the last minute; it’s good to be prepared.
- Make some space before you start. You’ll want a nice, clean space to spread the cupcake wrappers as you fill them one at a time. Make some space in the fridge too.
- Use fresh peaches. Trust us, it’s worth it. You might be tempted to use canned peaches for this one, and it’s OK, but you know better.
- Get yourself some fancy cupcake wrappers. After all, the looks are as important as taste.
- Not too thin, not too thick. Make sure you get the perfect crust in each muffin, use the back of a teaspoon to gently press the biscuit batter into the muffin wrapper once it’s well-fit into the muffin pan.
- Pair you peach muffins with an Italian Asti, sweet, sparkling wine. Peach flavors will mirror nicely in both dessert and glass.
This recipe really comes with a sense of achievement. The result always exceeds expectations. It’s the flavor, the texture, the lovely presentation; these cheesecake bites are truly on another level.
Be confident; your creations are worthy of the most memorable occasions and family celebrations.
