Cupcake Friday: Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites – Created By Diane

On this cold, rainy day, I definitely need my weekly dose of cupcake porn.  Today’s cupcake of choice follows the cheesecake theme from before Thanksgiving, but adds a seasonal twist.  Gingerbread is essential to the winter holidays, and I’m not sure I would survive without it, although I’m not a traditionalist.  I don’t go in for the crunchy gingerbread cookies, but I drool over Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread, and my pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving was made with Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Snaps, which are also to die for (and I don’t even like ginger snaps).

So today, Sophie and I are sitting at my desk lusting after Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites from Created By Diane.  These look spectactular, and they almost look easy, which is always a bonus – hey, that’s why we make cupcakes instead of cakes, right?  I’m excited to add these to my holiday repertoire.  I might even make them this weekend, if I’m feeling particularly ambitious.  Of course, I don’t really “do” store-bought dough or crusts, so I’ll probably make my own.  Just another amazing recipe to track down…

Do you have any gingerbread favorites planned this holiday season?  I’d love to hear all about them!
