Tulips - My Favorite Flower

I love this time of the year! Everything is so beautiful and greening up. These are some lovely tulips in my yard.

This recipe is my Grandmother Pat's cupcake recipe. It's to be used when you have surprised quests stop by or need to whip up a quick dessert.

Grandma’s Surprise Cupcakes

1 (12 oz.) cream cheese- softened
2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tbl. Vanilla

Whip cream cheese till smooth and fluffy, and add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Put a vanilla wafer in bottom of paper baking cups. Fill ½ full of cheese mixture. Bake 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Spread top with 1 1/2 c. sour cream mixed with ¼ c. sugar and top it off with fruit filling or fresh berries.

Lane ... thank you for this EASY cupcake recipe. May daughter and I will be making them this week. Thank you also for your Blog ... it is refreshing to see another family that believes in the "table time" that our society has dumped for spending time in a line at a local fast food restaurant. (I am not sure if the word FOOD should ever be coupled with the words FAST and CHAIN RESTAURANT !!!)

Thank you,
Mark

I appreciate your kind words. I agree that many dinners are spent eating out, rather then eating together as a family.

I hope that my recipes will get more people cooking for their families together.

Happy Easter to you and yours.
