i miss you so much on television. watch you everyday. your recipes and food are great. i especially loved your cream cheese tarts. have served them to company and have gotten nothing but compliments. still dont understand why they have taken you off tv. we all in our life time have said or done something which we are sorry for. no one in life is perfect. i think they are making to much of this. an apology was made and that should be enough. keep your head up you are wonderful. i have spoken to alot of people and they said the same thing cool it. take care and be well forever a fan of yours

Love this tart, its delicious and couldn't be easier. This is great for taking to church doesn't have to be sliced and can be served with only a napkin and NO PLATE, how much easier can that be. You have so many good delicious recipes that my family says I am a better cook since you came on TV. Paula, you are the best and I so admire you. You hang in and don't let anyone get you down. YOUR BODY IS YOUR OWN AND NO ONES BUSINESS. You are beautiful and have set the bar for everyone very high. Remember that when any one is putting you down for anything you can hold your head high. After all they are just envious and can't do what you do and can't be the true LADY that you are. Thank You and take care of yourself and your beautiful family. May God continue to Bless you. Mary Ann

very easy and delicious, I found that the "Girl Scout" shortbread cookies work great for the bottom crust, also I stretched the batter to make two dozen tarts, I also used both cherry and blueberry pie filling for the topping. Thank You Paula.

This was a very easy, simple, and delicious dessert. I'm making it for a superbowl party and already know it's going to be a hit. I've made it before and everybody wants more. The only thing I do differnt is I add fresh sliced strawberries on top. Always a winner.

LOVED IT!!!! So easy to make and soooooo yummy to eat! I used some homemade raspberry jam for the topping. Just as yummy...if not better...than those fancy tarts/mini cheesecakes you get at a fancy reception. Definitely a KEEPER for the ages! Thank you, Ms. Paula!

This recipe was absolutely delish. The only thing I did different, was instead of blueberries, I used cut up fresh strawberries. It wasn't hard to make, very simple. I will make it over and over again. Thanks Paula!!!
