Today I'm making my go to, super easy dessert that I always make for Christmas.
This makes 2 1/2 dozen tarts and is great for taking to pot-lucks or adding to your Christmas cookie tray.
The hardest part of this recipe is finding the Christmas muffin paper liners. I sometimes find them at the bulk food store and always stock up when I see them.
All you need is:
1 Cup Sugar
3 pkgs. cream cheese (250g or 8 oz.)
My "old" recipes are not in metric measure - that's how old I am :) !
4 tsp. lemon juice (be sure to use a real lemon - it's the best)
"Nilla" wafers (a.k.a. vanilla cookies)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs, add sugar, softened cream cheese and lemon. Mix till smooth.
Line muffin or tart tins with paper liners, place a vanilla wafer in bottom of each cup, spoon the batter into each cup - filling to 3/4 full.
Bake for 18-20 minutes.
Cool - tarts will slightly sink in the middle when cooling. Chill or freeze at this point.
Just before serving - garnish with some cherry pie filling.
