How To Make Raspberry Lime Cheesecake Jars
To get started, melt some butter in a microwave-safe bowl or on the stove.
Then, combine the melted butter with some graham cracker crumbs in a mixing bowl, stirring until everything is well combined.
Next, divide the graham cracker mixture evenly among 4 canning jars or other small jars with lids, pressing down firmly to create a crust.
In another mixing bowl, beat some cream cheese until it's smooth and creamy, and then add some sugar and lime juice, continuing to beat until everything is well combined.
Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the jars on top of the graham cracker crust, using a spoon or decorating tool to create an even layer.
Then, spoon in a layer of lime curd on top of the cream cheese layer. Top with a layer of whipped cream, using either pre-made or homemade whipped cream.
How To Make The Whipping Cream
In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and two tablespoons of sugar. Then, using an electric mixer, beat the mixture on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. That's it – you now have delicious homemade whipped cream!
To finish the recipe off, sprinkle the remaining graham cracker crumbs on top of the whipped cream, and add a few raspberries on top. Serve immediately or cover and store in the refrigerator until you're ready to enjoy this delicious dessert!
