Key Lime Coolers

Last night we went to our friends housewarming Oscar party and everyone brought a dish.  I was asked to bring these Key Lime Coolers I made last summer for a sundayfunday and I was happy to oblige.  They are the perfect size mini cheesecakes and the lime in them just puts them over the top! Personally with the lime I like them best in the summer but they are a great any time party treat.  Hope you enjoy!


  • 24 Key Lime Cooler cookies ( I can never find so I just use Nilla waffers)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, preferably Key lime
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • Fresh sweetened whipped cream
  • Mint leaves or lime zest, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Fill 2 (12-muffin) mini muffin tins with paper cups and spray cups with cooking spray. Place 1 Key Lime Cooler cookie in the bottom of each cup, flat side down.
Prepare filling. Beat together cream cheese, egg, sugar, lime juice, and zest until well mixed. Fill the cups to the top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove tarts to cool. When completely cool, fit a star tip in a pastry bag and fill with the whipped cream. Pipe the whipped cream on top of the tarts. Garnish with tiny mint leaves or lime zest.
