Mini No Bake Lime Cheesecakes for #CheesecakeDay! Cheesecake is my absolute favorite dessert ever and you will love this creamy and delicious cheesecake that doesn’t require turning on the oven!
When I heard that the incredibly talented and lovely Roxana of Roxana’s Home Baking was organizing a celebration for National Cheesecake Day, I signed up immediately. I love cheesecake, I love it too much. I kept trying to get a cheesecake baked and when the weather temporarily cooled down, I thought it was the perfect time.
Of course as life goes, I just could not get it done. So we are back to 100 degrees and I couldn’t bring myself to turn on the oven. I have made this Lime Cheesecake from a Land O’Lakes cookbook that I’ve had for years. So I decided it was perfect to share for Cheesecake Day!
I usually make this in my cheesecake pan and I’ve made it in a deep pie dish too. This time I thought a mini dessert would do the trick. I tried it in my mini cheesecake pan and it turned out alright but it wasn’t quite as firm as a baked cheesecake. So I decided these little glasses were just the ticket.
I love the combination of berries and lime so I drizzled in a little berry jam and these little desserts were a fantastic summer treat! Cheesecake Day has turned into quite the event with a ton of delicious cheesecake recipes! Just scroll below the recipe and be sure to check them all out! I want to give a great big thanks to Roxana for the fabulous idea and for all of her hard work putting this together!!
