  2. Place the cream cheese, sugar or Splenda®, lemon juice and vanilla in a large bowl. Blend with an electric mixer.
  3. Add the eggs and beat until fluffy.
  4. Line a cupcake tin with paper holders. Place one vanilla wafer into the bottom of each cup.

Helpful hints

  • If Splenda® no calorie sweetener (granular form) is used, calories are reduced to 96 and carbohydrate is reduced to 6 grams per tart (1/2 Carbohydrate Choice).
  • Try low-fat or fat-free cream cheese to reduce the fat content.
  • Do not over beat mixture.
  • Do not over bake—tarts may appear soft and moist, but will firm up after cooling.
