Strawberry Cream Cheese Tarts

I saw a lovely recipe on elmundoeats for Strawberry Cheese Tarts and I thought i would like to make them.  But rather than push pastry into tart tins I wanted to experiment with making some little cups by laying discs of pastry on an upturned muffin tray.  So that is what I did for my version.
