If you love to bake, bite-size items are great go-to recipes, since there is built-in portion control. Remember, smaller portions are an important part of any meal plan. Plus, our Almond Cheesecake Tarts are so decadent, a smaller bite doesn't mean they're small on taste!

What You'll Need

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract*, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line mini muffin pans with foil muffin cup liners.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar; beat well. Beat in the eggs one at a time then beat in 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice until well combined. Spoon the mixture evenly into the muffin cups.

  3. Bake for 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sour cream and the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, and 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice; mix well then spread over the cheesecake tarts. Top each with slivered almonds.

  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool, cover, and chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
