No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes


This is one of the best desserts I have ever made, hands down. It was super easy and no baking required.  Matt and I could not stop stuffing our faces with these tasty little treats.  Added bonus they look really professional, right?  I was impressed with myself for whipping these together, but truth is it was easy!   If you love Key Lime Pie you will absolutely adore this dessert.  They can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer.  Just take them out and put them in the fridge about an hour before you want to serve them.  Try and eat just one, I dare you!

Ingredients
Crust
  • 3/4 cup(s) graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoon(s) (unsalted) butter, melted
Filling
  • 8 ounce(s) (reduced-fat) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can(s) (14-oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) (bottled) key lime juice (I used the juice from large regular limes)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 container(s) (8-oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • lime slices and/or lime zest, for garnish, optional 

Directions
  1. Line 12 cupcake cups with foil liners. Stir graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together in a bowl to combine. Spoon 1 Tbsp. of the mixture into each liner, pressing it down to make the crust.
  2. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl until creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the condensed milk and key lime juice, and blend on medium speed until just combined, 20 to 30 seconds. Add 1 cup of the whipped topping and lime zest and blend on low speed for 15 seconds longer.
  3. Spoon mixture evenly into liners. Cover pan with plastic and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving; peel off liners and dollop 1 Tbsp. remaining whipped topping on each cake. Garnish with lime slices, if you like.
