These little, frozen cheesecakes are a surefire crowd-pleaser, particularly when served with the peach puree. They're even great when made with a sugar substitute. —Eva Wright of Grant, Alabama

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2015

"I make these with graham cracker crumbs (per my husbands request) and top them with pureed frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, mango etc). I add sweetener and a small amount of the gelatin to the puree. Then I freeze them and store in a freezer baggie. Take them out of the freezer for about 5 minutes before eating. Sometimes I substitute vanilla extract for the almond depending on the fruit I use."

"Substituted Raspberry Smucker Simply Fruit thinned with pure maple syrup for peach sauce. Let it defrost until its a little soft. It's delicious."

"I liked them, except for the almonds. I will use a graham wafer or chocolate cookie base next time. I served them with the base down in a sherbet dish and drizzled chocolate on top. Refreshing!"

"I ended up with chunks of gelatin in my almond cream. I would have tried the recipe again to see if I could get the lumps out, but the almond and peach combo just didn't work for me (taste-wise)."

"Hi Norma, I too live alone. If made in a muffin tin then the servings may be consummed one at a time. Also, when it comes to the math, try halfing all of the ingredients and making a half batch. It tends to be easier that way."
