      I cannot say enough good things about these! I made them as part of the dessert buffet for our wedding and they were a huge hit. Kept to the recipe but subbed 1/2 t. lemon extract for the lemon peel. Also made an Almond Graham Cracker crust: mixed 1 C graham cracker crumbs, 1 T white sugar, 5 T melted butter & 1/2 t. almond extract in a bowl. Added about 1 T of the graham cracker crust to the bottom of the cupcake holder.

      Incredibly easy, gourmet results.

      10 STARS for these! Delicious and very easy. Loved the flavor of the lemon and toasted pine nuts together. I also used paper liners with no problem. I think they would be good with orange instead of lemon, also! Thanks for this keeper. made for ZWT 7.

      These cute wee cakes are a breeze to put together and come out delicious. I didn't have a lemon for the peel but wanted the lemon flavor so I added 3/4 tsp of lemon extract along with the vanilla. I just wanted a few nuts on each cheesecake and didn't bother toasting the tablespoon of them that I used. 20 mins was the ideal baking time, mine were perfect at that point. I think that I should mention too that I didn't have foil cups so just used paper cups that I sprayed with Pam and they came out easily. Made for Photo Tag.
