No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Tarts (Light)

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by PaulaG

These are made with cottage cheese and thick, creamy, non-fat yogurt. They only take a few minutes to put together and are sure to impress. The prep time does include the 2 hours chilling but not the time needed to drain the yogurt.

These are so yummy! I had one problem though - I halved the filling recipe and still had enough for 4 mini crusts; actually, if I hadn't filled them to overflowing I probably would have had enough for 5 crusts. I forgot to brown the crusts but it didn't seem to have too much effect. I used regular sugar. Definitely can't tell that they are a light dessert. Thanks for sharing!
