  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and make sure to grease 12 cup muffin pan so they will come out easily.
  2. For the Cream Cheese Filling: In the bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until light and fluffy, about two minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract and transfer to the freezer and chill until at least slightly firm.
  4. For the Muffins: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt; set aside.
  5. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, vegetable oil, milk and vanilla extract. Stir the dry ingredients in the milk mixture gently until just incorporated.
  6. Do not over-mix, the batter should be slightly lumpy.
  7. For the topping: In a small bowl, stir together flour, sugar and cinnamon.
  8. Add the cold butter and mix with a fork until the mixture looks like coarse wet sand. Set aside.
  9. Spoon in one tablespoon of muffin mixture into each cup.
  10. Add a few chunks of strawberries and a one teaspoon of cream cheese filling to each muffin cup.
  11. Sprinkle some of the streusel topping on the cheesecake filling,
  12. Fill the muffins with remaining batter so the strawberry cream cheese filling is covered.
  13. Top with remaining strawberries, and sprinkle remaining streusel topping.
  14. Bake for 22-25 minutes. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes and serve warm.
  15. I maybe eating one right now! :)
