I have to post this recipe in honor of my mother since it’s 4th of July week. I think she’s made these every year on the 4th for as long as I can remember. We made them for lots of occasions, because they’re quick, easy, and yummy, but they’re especially fun on the 4th of July because they’re easy to decorate with red, white, and blue! They’re great for pot-lucks, block parties, baby and wedding showers, and things like that because they’re already packaged in nice single servings. And the great thing is that you can top them with whatever you want. After they’ve chilled they have a perfect well in the center. Fill with lemon curd, chocolate, caramel, whipped cream and berries or any flavor of canned pie filling. And see below for my secret “no crust” trick- a cookie!
1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 375. Soften cream cheese if needed. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar. Add in flour and baking powder and beat to combine. Then add in eggs, one at a time, lemon juice, and vanilla. Beat to combine.
