  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Lightly spray 8 holes of a ⅓ cup (80ml) capacity silicone muffin tray.

  3. To make filling, process tofu, cream cheese and sugar in a food processor until smooth. Add lemon rind and juice, strained passionfruit pulp and cornflour and process until combined. Divide mixture evenly over biscuit bases in muffin tray.
