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

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup ground almonds
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 12 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • PEACH SAUCE:
  • 3 cups sliced peeled peaches
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine almonds and butter. Press onto the bottom of 12 paper- or foil-lined muffin cups. Cover and freeze for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Cook over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in milk and extract. Stir in gelatin mixture. Spoon into muffin cups; freeze until firm.
  4. Remove desserts from the freezer 10 minutes before serving. Place the sauce ingredients in a blender; cover and process until pureed. Spoon onto dessert plates. Peel liners off desserts; invert onto peach sauce.
