I’ve been hibernating inside ever since I returned from California. It’s way too cold for me to want to go out and play. However, I did venture out to the grocery store. While I was there I picked up a bag of lemons. Lemons always make me think of Spring and Summer and I knew they would be just the thing to brighten my kitchen and make some lovely treats.
Besides my little foray to the grocery store Em & I have been tucked inside working on craft projects, watching movies, cooking and baking. Since I bought the bag of lemons I have been baking up lemony delicious treats and drinking a fair amount of lemon water.
I, surprisingly, had ingredients on hand to whip up these tasty mini lemon cheesecakes the other day. So simple to make and done in a short amount of time.
These are perfect to serve at a girlfriend brunch or dessert for your family.
MINI LEMON CHEESECAKES
1/4 c sugar
1 8oz cream cheese, room temp
1/4 cup sour cream
zest and juice from 1/4 to 1/2 lemon
6 mini graham cracker shells
1. Blend together the sugar and cream cheese. Add the sour cream, lemon zest and lemon juice and mix well. Stir in the egg.
2. Equally divide the filing to the 6 graham cracker shells. Place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes or until centers are almost set.
3. Let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate.
That’s it, you can mix and bake in 30 minutes. I love how simple this is to make, yet is still so very good.
