The Rest of The Fish

Here are the rest of the fish related snacks we had for VBS last week.

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.
