No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes

Recently I’ve become obsessed with having fresh flowers in the house. In the past I always thought spending time and money on such things was a bit frivolous, but I realized that having something so pretty and alive really does brighten up a house and make it feel like home. Plus I had never really put any effort into caring for flowers before so they always died really quickly, but now I have a few tricks up my sleeve for making them last longer. My favorite one is popping them in the fridge overnight! I actually just realized our new fridge has a flap on one of the shelves that makes room for something extra tall, perfect for a vase of flowers. Thanks, Internet, for making me feel a little like Martha!

What are your favorite flowers to have in the house? Where do you buy them? Any tips on keeping them fresh and alive? I feel like I need all the help I can get. When I look at the flowers at the store (too hot for the farmer’s market) I get completely overwhelmed. It reminds me actually of when I first started getting into baking. There’s a lot to know, but luckily with just a few tricks you can usually whip up something amazing.

That’s why I love these little No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes. They are ridiculously easy and require only a microwave! No oven, stove, or anything remotely hot. Perfect for the heat wave we’ve been having lately! You can make them in a mini muffin tin, but since they’re no-bake they tend to stick to the pan. I’d recommend a mini cheesecake pan, I adore mine!

Recipe Rundown....

Taste: Ridiculously fresh, especially since there is no baking that dulls any of the vibrant citrus and tangy cream cheese flavors.

Texture: In love with the contrast between a crunchy buttery crust and a luscious, thick, and rich cheesecake filling. These are slightly more loose and cream cheese-y than baked cheesecake.

Ease: Ridiculously quick and easy – the most time consuming part is just filling all the mini cheesecake pan cavities with the crust and then the filling.

Appearance: So adorable and pretty. The whipped cream and lime garnish really make these look gourmet!

Pros: Perfect warm weather treat.

Cons: Rich, next time I might substitute some of the cream with yogurt.

Would I make this again? Oh yes.

How to make No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes
