Cupcakes Pedro Ximénez with cream cheese
Today, in Family Kitchen with Javier Romero, I present you a recipe from those that are very modern today, but which I have adapted to my kitchen, giving it my personal touch. These are Pedro Ximénez tartlets with cream cheese. A mixture that may sound out of the ordinary, but I assure you that this is a real spectacle in the mouth. Pedro Ximénez is a grape variety that is grown mainly in Andalusia, in southern Spain, although it can be found in other parts of the country and even in other countries. Wines made with this variety are usually type Xerez, amontillados. This classic sweet wine, which is considered a dessert to complete a good meal.
The curious thing I can tell you about this type of wine is that in many cases the barrels where they are made are sent to Scotland. Whiskey is made there, which causes bias among fans of this drink. Imagine that the barrel wood absorbs the sweetness of the wine and then adds that touch to a good Scotch whiskey. For people who love whiskey, this should be a show for the palate.
Taking advantage of this cream cheese, you can use it with other types of muffins and muffin recipes is what I get the most in Family Kitchen. For this reason, I will leave you with a few links to step-by-step recipes that you can see by simply clicking on the title in blue.

Ingredients for 6 people
We start by placing the eggs with the sugar in the bowl of our mechanical mixer (if you don’t have one, you can find it CLICK HERE). We will put it on top speed for 5-7 minutes until they turn into a whitish mixture that has increased a lot in size.
After this time we will reduce the speed to medium intensity and add the butter, milk and Pedro Ximénez, but we will not add an ingredient until the previous one is well mixed.
At this point we will put the flour mixed with the yeast tablespoon by tablespoon.
After integrating everything, we will pour the dough into the Tescoma dough dispenser, which is specially designed for this. Then we will fill the paper cups, which we will put on a cake tray almost to the edge. You can find the 3 utensils in the Tescoma pastry package, which I have sheltered in my online store and which you will find CLICK HERE.
We turn on the oven at 200 ° C with heating up and down WITHOUT a fan. When it is hot, put the tray with the muffins and bake them for 15 minutes.
After this time, remove the pan from the oven and let the muffins warm up a bit. When they no longer burn too much, we remove them carefully and place them on some kind of grill or something that allows them to breathe underneath so that they do not sweat and become too wet.
While they are cooling completely, we will prepare the cream cheese by placing the liquid cream and powdered sugar in the bowl of our mixer (as you can see, it is essential in this recipe). We will start the shake at medium speed until the sugar integrates and then we will raise it a little to whip the cream. When almost done, we will add the cream cheese and beat again until the whipped cream integrates perfectly. Be careful not to install too much because it makes oil.
It is recommended to put the cream cheese to cool for half an hour in the refrigerator so that it acquires an optimal consistency. With the finished cream and cold muffins we will continue to decorate them with the help of a pastry bag.
Finally we can sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. This part is freer, you can put your favorite decorative element on top.
And that is, friends, we can complete this recipe for Pedro Ximénez cupcakes with cream cheese. I hope that you will prepare these delicacies very soon at home and you will tell me the result on social networks. I say goodbye now, I’m waiting for you tomorrow in the new recipe, which I will publish here in Family Kitchen.
Thanks for reading.
