Make This Recipe


For the Crust

12-15 gingersnaps

2 tablespoons butter melted

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

For the Filling

8 oz cream cheese, softened at room temperature

1 Eggland's Best Large Egg, room temperature

1 Eggland's Best Large Egg Yolk, room temperature

1 tablespoon molasses

1/3 cup powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

½ teaspoon ground dried ginger

¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

¼ teaspoon cardamom

pinch of salt

Toppings - whipped cream, caramel, nuts, melted chocolate, toffee sauce, etc.


  1. Line your muffin/cupcake pan with 6 liners and preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Add the ginger snaps to a food processor fitted with metal blade, add butter and granulated sugar. Crush them to a fine powder.
  3. Put a heaping tablespoon in each liner and press down using back of a cup or spoon. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients under the filling (except topping) and using a hand mixer, beat until smooth and fluffy.
  5. Add about 1/3 cup on top of the crust. Once filled, tap the pan a few times to get rid of any air bubbles.
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until set, little jiggly in the center is fine.
  7. Once baked, switch off the stove, open the door and let the cakes cool for 10 minutes.
  8. After 10 minutes, pull out of the oven and transfer using a spatula to lift and place on a rack to cool down completely.
  9. Chill for at least 6 hours or overnight before serving. Add whipped cream and toppings as you wish.
