Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 6 servings



  • As seen on WKTV NEWSChannel 2
  • 1 (6-count) packages store-bought mini graham cracker pie crusts
  • 1 (8-ounce) package regular or reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Lemon slices (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place crusts in their foil pans on a baking sheet. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until creamy. Add sugar; beat until smooth. Add egg and lemon juice; beat until combined. Stir in lemon zest. Divide batter among crusts. Bake until centers are just set, 20 to 22 minutes. Place tarts on a wire rack. Cool completely. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 2 hours. Remove tarts from their disposable foil pans, if desired. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.
