    These were so easy and delicious. Even my granddaughter who claims not to like cheesecake loved them. The almond flavor is jut wonderful.

    I remember my mom making these when I was a kid, and always loved them. I'm so happy to have this recipe again!

    Delicious and very easy, or very easy and delicious. Just the kind of thing I like. If you're cooking with kids, the hardest part is to get them to wait till the cheesecakes are cold!

    Made this for Easter brunch yesterday with a mini cupcake baking sheet. Halfed the ingredients and used sliced strawberries for decoration. Attached the strawberries with leftover icing. Was an absolute hit. All gone within 15 minutes.

    Haven't made these yet but I am wondering since the recipe states "Mini" if you use regular size muffin cups and pan, or do you use the mini muffin cups and pan? Please respond to noah11@verizon.net. Thanks.

    Not sure why Stephen couldn't find the topping of lemon curd, its in the tips! These were delicious and great for 'finger foods'. Served them for a birthday party I hosted this weekend and they were a huge hit! I highly recommend them!

    To Stephen, i checked the foodtv web for the lemon curd recepi, there are a quite handful of choice you can find there. Try one of the easiest one if it works for your taste liking.

    What is on top of the mini cakes holding the fruit pieces in place? It looks like maybe vanilla pudding or something, but the recipe doesn't mention this at all? Thanks
