Cheesecake Tarts Recipe

Here is the recipe for the cute little cheesecake tarts Laura made. I happen to be borrowing the cookbook they came from so I got the honors of posting the recipe. The book is called Dessert Express, 100 sweets you can make in 30 minutes or less, by Lauren Chattman.

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
12 vanilla wafers
12 fresh raspberries or blackberries
Fresh mint leaves for garnish

Combine the cream cheese, lemon juice and zest, and vanilla in a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until very smooth. Beat in the powdered sugar.

Arrange the vanilla wafers on a serving platter. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on each one, then top with a berry. Garnish the platter with mint leaves. Serve immediately, or refrigerate for up to one hour before serving.

Makes 12.
