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 Mar. 3, 2013

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 18, 2012

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2011

"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)."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2011

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2011

"this recipe can be made even healthier by using Stevia or Splenda instead of sugar! Roast your own raw almonds, dont use salted ones too!"
