Lemon Mini Cheesecakes With Lemon Curd
Mini lemon cakes were our inspiration for this recipe initially. Then, we took that idea a step further and thought, “Let’s do mini cheesecakes instead!” After all, who doesn’t love cheesecake, let alone mini versions?!
This recipe hits the spot if you’re looking for something sweet and citrusy. Be warned, the convenience of these might have you coming back to the dessert table for more than one.
Mini cheesecakes are perfect for Game of Thrones viewing parties, entertaining for holidays and birthdays, and our personal favorite reason: Just because!
We loved using Melissa’s Almond Clean Snax® as a base instead of your traditional graham cracker crust. In some ways, we felt like this was a healthier base, but mostly we loved the texture it added to the dessert. The almond flavor added a nice nuttiness to balance the bite from the citrus as well.
Even after season 8 of Game of Thrones finishes its final episode, this recipe will still be in season. We have a feeling it will be making an appearance at multiple summer BBQs.
