Ooh... easy little cheesecakes! These are a fantastic treat. They bake up quickly and look very impressive. I loved this as is, but might try different flavor extracts next time; I think that orange extract or almond extract would be fabulous with the creamy cheese and caramel! Thanks for this great recipe.

I made these for a Mother's Day get together we are having tomorrow. I am rating them already as my husband asked if he could sample them and I gave him one. He had a look of food ecstasy on his face as he ate it and immediately begged for another one. He said he would eat all of them if I would let him. Thanks for an easy and (I assume) tasty recipe!!

These little cheese tarts make up in a jiffy and have a nice flavor. I thought the caramel topping added a nicely different taste. For flavor and ease of preparation..5 stars. The texture rated 4.5 stars, but I will make again. Thanks.
