cream cheese tarts: revisited

i posted pictures of these before but forgot to share the recipe. i made adjustments to the crust and topping (gingersnap cookies) for a more fall feel, but the basic recipe is the same.

3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
1 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 T. lemon juice
2 t. vanilla
cookie wafers (nillas, oreos, this time i used a gingersnap - gluten free for a co-worker)
(could garnish with cherries or fruit if made with a nilla wafer or something like that)

beat all but wafers and chosen garnish until well-blended. line cupcake pans with foil-lined cupcake papers. place a wafer in bottom of each. fill with cream cheese mixture 2/3 full. bake in 350° oven for 20 minutes; cool. garnish with crushed leftover cookies or fruit filling. makes 30 cakes.

Hey Caroline! I got found your blog through Erica. How are you? Are you living in Salt Lake? I'm in Provo.

Btw I can't wait to make your buttermilk biscuits. I've been looking for a tried and true recipe.

I made the oreo version and they were great, so I am excited to try these. I don't even remember how I found your blog, but just realized that we have a mutual friend. Dallas Graham. Anyway, thanks for all the great recipes! Love the blog.
