Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes
Ingriedients
For the crust
 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
 3 tbsp. sugar
For the strawberry swirl
 6 oz. fresh strawberries
 2 tbsp. sugar
For the filling
 2 lbs. cream cheese, at room temperature (I used 3 packages)
 1½ cups sugar
 Pinch of salt
 1 tsp. vanilla extract
 4 large eggs, at room temperature (I used 3 eggs)
Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 325˚ F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners. In a small bowl, combine the graham
cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Stir together with a fork until well blended and all the dry
ingredients are moistened. Press 1 tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner.
2. To make the strawberry puree, combine the strawberry and sugar in a blender or food
processor. Process until smooth, then pour through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds.
3. To make the cheesecake, beat the cream cheese on medium-high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer
until fluffy. Blend in the sugar until smooth. Mix in the salt and vanilla. Beat in the eggs one at a
time, mixing well after each addition.
4. To assemble, spoon 3 tablespoons of the cheesecake batter over the crust in each cupcake liner. Dot a
½ teaspoon of the strawberry puree in a few dots over the cheesecake filling. Use a toothpick or a
wooden skewer to lightly swirl and create a marbled effect.
5. Bake until the filling is set, about 22 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking. (They will
look quite puffed initially but will return to normal quickly.) Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let
cool to room temperature. Transfer to the refrigerator and let chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

125g Ground Almonds
3 Free Range Egg (Whites Only)
Pinch of Salt

blitzing both the icing sugar and ground almonds in the food processor to make them finer.
3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites and a pinch of salt into soft peaks. Gradually whisk in the caster sugar
until it's thick and glossy.
4. Add in desired colour / flavour (tiny amounts).
5. Fold half the icing sugar and ground almond mixture into the meringue and mix thoroughly. Add in the other
half of the mixture. Use a spatula to fold together until it has thickened and becomes glossy.
6. Spoon into a piping bag.
7. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
8. Pipe 3cm rounds onto the baking paper then give the baking tray a little tap on the work surface. Leave to
stand for 20 minutes, until they form a slight skin.
9. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
10. Whilst they are cooling you can make the filling. Beat together the butter and icing sugar, add in desired
colouring / flavour (tiny amounts) and combine.
