Clean Cheesecake Tartlets

INGREDIENTS:
6 tbsp all-natural, no-sugar-added fruit preserves of your choice
36 fresh berries (raspberries, large blueberries or strawberries), quartered
CHEESECAKE FILLING
4 oz low-fat cream cheese, softened
4 oz fresh goat cheese, softened 
2 tbsp raw honey 
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
LEMON SHORTBREAD
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour 
2/3 cup organic unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup raw honey
2 tsp finely grated lemon zest 
 
INSTRUCTIONS:
Prepare Cheesecake Filling: In a food processor, blend both cheeses, honey and vanilla, stopping to scrape sides of bowl, until smooth. Spoon mixture into a piping bag. (Alternatively, use a small re-seal-able bag with a small piece snipped off 1 corner). Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 
Preheatir oven to 350°F. Prepare Lemon Shortbread: In a large bowl, add flour, butter, honey and zest; mix with a fork until well blended and a dough is formed. 
Form into 36 tablespoon-size balls. Place balls in cups of a nonstick  mini muffin or mini tartlet pan. Use the back of a spoon or your thumb to press each ball onto bottom and partway up side of each cup (dough should be quite thin) to make an indentation to hold preserves. Spoon 1/2 tsp fruit preserves into each cup.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden and firm. Transfer pan to a rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Remove tartlets from pan and let cool completely on rack, about 20 minutes.
Pipe about 1 tsp Cheesecake Filling onto each tartlet, then top with berries. Leftover 4 oz Cheesecake Filling can be kept, covered, in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
 
Enjoy!
