Individual Lemon Cheesecakes

Happy belated Cinco de Mayo everyone! enjoy this cool treat:

1 8oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons lemon curd
6 mini graham cracker crusts (recommended keebler)
Whipped topping (recommended cool whip)
Sugared lemon slices for garnish

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in the lemon curd on low speed until just combined.

Spoon the mixture into the graham cracker crusts. Place on a small baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes or more. Serve with a dollop of whipped topping and 1/4 of a slice of lemon that has been sprinkled with sugar.

If you like lemons you will LOVE this creamy dessert. Perfect for parties, easy to make, and clean up was fast. You can easily substitute the lemon curd for lime, raspberry or blueberry curd, or even chocolate! Got great reviews from family members (especially those who are big lemon fans) and I was also asked to make them again for an upcoming family get together.
