  • Weck or mason jars


  • 12 honey graham crackers finely ground
  • 5 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • cup heavy cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 8 oz packages reduced fat cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • cup key lime or regular lime juice about 4 limes
  • zest from 3 limes


  • In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and salt. Add melted butter and stir using a spatula until mixture begins to stick together. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor with whisk attachment fitted, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Transfer to another bowl, then switch out whisk attachment with the paddle attachment.
  • Cream the sweetened condensed milk together with the cream cheese on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the vanilla, lime juice, and zest, then beat an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour whipped cream into cream cheese mixture and fold gently until combined.
  • In 6 small glass jars (or one container, if serving family-style) alternate layers of graham cracker crumbs with key lime cheesecake until you reach the top. Place lid(a) on and chill in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Garnish each cheesecake with extra graham cracker crumbs before serving and thinly sliced lime rounds or wedges.
