"Delicious, impressive looking little tarts! You can use any type of berry you want, just make sure you use the same type of preserves as berries. Adapted from Oregon Strawberry Recipes."
Serving Size: 1 (3781 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"I don't think 5 stars are enough. Aside from using light cream cheese and sour cream like others, I also used Splenda. I was out of lemon zest so I used a teaspoon of lime juice for the citrus. These were amazing. I also used red raspberries and black berries to make mine. Topped with light whipped cream they were quickly devoured. This is my new favorite dessert. Much healthier than most desserts I eat. And so quick to make!!! Thank you so much Leslie for posting the recipe. A definite keeper for me!"
"These were really quick and easy to make! The filling, for me, had a slight tart taste even with the sugar, so I added a teaspoon of vanilla and that made it perfect for me. I made ours with fresh blueberries, and kept some plain. Nice and refreshing for a hot summer day. Thanks for posting, this is a definite go-to recipe for a nice little dessert in a hurry. Thanks for posting ~Leslie~, made for Diabetic Tailgate Party in the Diabetic Forum, September 2010!"
"These are so good! I quartered the recipe, which should have been enough for 3 tarts; I split the filling that way, but they weren't very full (I used Keebler mini graham shells which are about 3" across). Next time I would use a quarter recipe for two tarts, not three. I used a little more fruit so the shells were fuller since there was less cheese filling. Otherwise, these were really awesome and had great flavor. I did have to use blueberries (and blueberry preserves) instead of strawberries but otherwise made no changes. Thanks for sharing!"
"=) How can something so easy be so good.. We ate it with vanilla icecream."
"Simple and delicious. Made a great treat for coworkers! Thanks!"
"Very good. Everyone ate every last crumb."
"Omg, I just noticed the chocolate drizzle option! Not sure how I missed it, but I've been missing a lot these days. But I digress. These are delicious! And impressive is RIGHT. Desserts aren't my thing, but every once in a while I get a wild hair up my.... nose and gotta make one. Then I generally feed it all to my husband who loves this kind of thing. But I cheated this time and ate one of these. NYA-HA-HAA! Really delish. I'd made 6 tarts and thought they'd last a few days, but when I got home from the spa today, there was ONE left! *SHOCK* I didn't have strawberries, but did have some Trader Joe's frozen raspberries (sprinkled with a tiny bit of sugar, then chilled first) that turned out fantastic on these. Thanks, Leslie, for a great recipe!"
"These were so easy to make!! I used light vream chees and light sour cream. We really enjoyed these. Perfect serving size. I am definitely keeping these in mind when doing teacher luncheons, kids bday parties, etc. So easy and delicious!!! Thanks!"
"Love cheesecakes, (any kind)This is even better as the individual servings are just right. Filling was light and fluffly, I used strawberries but will try raspberries next time. I perfer them to strawberries."
"I made these for a work pot luck. Everyone loves them!! I didn't use the tart shells though. I actually used Graham Cracker crumbs and followed the directions on the box to make pie crusts. Pressing the mixture into cupcake cups. They make a great single serving that won't over fill."
"So easy and very impressive. I used a premade pie crust which I cut to fit my 4" tart shells. Half a recipe made just the right amount of filling for 4 which was perfect for an elegant dinner party for friends. As suggested, I drizzled melted chocolate over the top then topped with whipped cream. A definate winner!"
"Made this in a round pan and cut into wedges. Everyone gave it more then a 5.The lemon zest really topped it off."
"Very delicious and the people I work with LOVED this. I didn't want to have to juggle a bunch of little servings so I used prpared graham cracker pie shells. I also had alot of strawberries left over from the past recipes for this Tour so I was reallllly happy to find another one I could use the rest in. I didn't have any chocolate to drizzle over but you can bet next time I will. "
"Now that fruit is in season, I just had to try these tarts... absolutely delicious! I made these using fresh strawberries, I doubled the recipe as I made these to give some away. These are so good, next time I will make these using blueberries. Leslie, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful tart recipe...Kitten:)"
"Wonderful, wonderful recipe! Just like a strawberry cheesecake but in bite-sized form. Everyone was ooing and awing over these little tarts and all went back for more! I have had many requests for this recipe already. Simpe to make with fabulous results! Thanks"
"I made these for our Memorial Day barbecue and they are excellent!!! The perfect ending for our meal. I made exactly as posted except I filled the tart shells very full and made 6 instead of 12. Thank you so much for posting ~ I'll use this recipe with other fruit as well."
