Servings: 8 -10 servings
- 12 honey graham crackers finely ground
- 5 Tbsp granulated sugar
- ¾ tsp kosher salt
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
- ⅔ cup heavy cream
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 8 oz packages reduced fat cream cheese room temperature
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ⅓ 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.
