I was asked today for two of my recipes. It is such an honor to be asked for a recipe and I thank you for the compliments. So here ya go....

Lemon Cream Cheese Cupcakes

1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup water
4 egg whites
2 Tbsp. oil
1 pkg. (16 oz.) powdered sugar
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Beat cake mix, pudding mix, water, egg whites and oil in large bowl with mixer on low speed until moistened. (Batter will be thick.) Beat on medium speed 2 min. Spoon batter evenly into 24 paper-lined 2-1/2-inch muffin cups.

BAKE 21 to 24 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.

Yum! Thanks Sarah. THE best cupcakes I've honestly ever had. We had two left here when you went home. Had them for supper that night and Dad said "these are pretty good" and I said "not just PRETTY good" and then the whole time he ate his he was going mmmmm mmmmm mmmm mmmmmmm. I've never bought packages of cheese ravioli in my life. I love that I'll never stop learning things from our children. Mom
