“An easy and very tasty little dessert that's so quick to whip up, and are just as quick to disappear! I experimented with several recipes to get this one because my husband wanted a cheesecake I could add bacon to, yes I said BACON! I found one that used maple syrup and maple bacon, so I pieced this recipe together, made a separate batch for him with maple bacon in it, both versions were a hit! Brought the tarts for my co-workers and the best quote was "holy smokes are these good!"”
