I made individual tarts. Instead of crushing the biscuits to make a crust, I used whole biscuits, warmed in a slow oven for 5 - 10 minutes, and then pressed the biscuits into small round patty-cake tins. This made heaps of individual tarts that were gone in a flash at our get together. Fantastic for a crowd...great finger-food. Even my mum, who hates cream cheese loved them. Excellent Recipe. Thanks.

I started using this recipe about 4 years ago and my family won't let me stop making it :). One BIG tip: If you can avoid the Nabisco gingersnaps you'll be much happier. They're easy to find but almost impossible to crush. The brand I've found the most crush friendly (and tasty) are Anna's. I've found them at Longs/Walgreens/Cost Plus World Market and it looks like more places are starting to carry them. It'll take about a box and a half to make one crust (depending on how thick you want it). I vary the fruit topping by what's in season and I just heap it on.

I made this with a pre-made graham cracker crumb crust and it was a total hit! It didn't even turn out right... my cream cheese wasn't soft enough and I added the heavy cream too early, so there were little lumps. I also didn't know when to stop whipping, so I'm sure it could have been lighter and fluffier. I also used peach preserves instead of apricot. As I said, even with all the mistakes, everyone still loved it!
