Delicious and so easy to prepare! My husband loves it! I used Tennis-biscuits (South Africa as base instead of wafers. And used granadilla (passion fruit pulp as topping - very tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love these tarts ( not a true cheesecake for those complainers They are suppose to sink and crack. That is where you put the Filling ! I also have add Amaretto in place of vanilla . They go fast everytime I bring them anywhere . Remember people it dosen't have to be perfect to be good. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Love these cream cheese tarts, i think they are perfect, change i only made is use 1/2 cup of sugar instead of the full cup, i used the full cup before and i personally think it comes out really sweet, so 1/2 is good, and it still comes out pretty sweet! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The name is wrong, they are mini cheese cakes not tarts. They're good, cute, easy and convenient. They are not amazing, they need something, maybe some lemon zest. I also had to cook them longer than 20 mins (I am at a high altitude though. They do stick to the paper and the cookie is kind of pointless. It just gets kinda chewy and doesn't fill the whole bottom. I will make them again when I want cheesecake, not tarts. I will probably add lemon zest and a graham cracker crust. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Tried these for the first time yesterday...they were great! Couldn't find any Vanilla Wafers or Cherry Pie filling so I used mini Chocolate Chip cookies and Strawberry Pie Filling instead. They tasted just like store bought cheesecake only they were mini and more adorable! = item not reviewed by moderator and published

You're doing it right! They ARE supposed to sink in the middle. The filling goes inside that well. :-) item not reviewed by moderator and published
