Foodie Friday

Glorious Friday Gorgeous Friends!

I’m excited to share this weeks Foodie Friday but have to admit it still needs some tweaking, so play around with this base..I sure will be! Just as they are there these key lime cheesecake cups are delicious BUT like anything great, it takes more than one try! Phil has been begging me to make him something key lime so as a mini-celebration for taking/passing his CA brokers test, I whipped up these – mind you we gave up sugary/indulgent desserts for Lent, so I had to get a little creative. photo-9

Key Lime Cheesecake Cups

  • 6 tbsp marscapone cheese
  • 4 tbsp 0% greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tbsp lime zest
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 4-6 honey graham sheets
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 pinch salt

Zest and juice limes into a medium mixing bowl – add cheese, yogurt, honey, 1 pinch of salt and whip until well combined. Once the base is mixed set aside in fridge. Take about 4-5 sheets of graham and put into bag to crush or pulse in food processor until they become crumbs. Mix graham crumbs with butter & 1 pinch of salt until well combined. Now that both parts are completed, its time to assemble. Place a generous amount of crumbs on bottom on cup and pack them down with the back of a spoon. Then layer in some key lime cheesecake, then more crumbs, then another layer of key lime, and lastly, a light dusting of crumbs – maybe sticking a few larger chunks in if you want to get fancy 😉 Once your cups are assembled, place them in the fridge for a few hours to set, which honestly is the longest, hardest part of this whole dessert making process, haha!

Enjoy!

’til next time, keep smiling! 🙂
