Cherry cheesecake tarts were Joe’s favorite dessert.
When my mother-in-law taught me how to make this she stated the mixture had to be beaten EXACTLY 5 minutes, not a second more or less. Why I do not know.
This used to be made for Christmas Day, but I have not taken it for years. Maybe this I will take these again.
