My Name Is Snickerdoodle: No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes

No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes

Raise your hand if you've had record breaking heat waves this summer!  It's not very inticing to go outside, is it?  Lately, I've been all about the desserts of the no bake variety and it's working out pretty well!  My Pinterest board has been filling up with loads of recipes that don't require turning on the oven.   
I came up with these No Bake Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes because I was craving a little something tart.  They are the perfect combination of creamy, sweet and tart.  And I didn't turn on my oven once!

Lately I've been loving desserts that come together in minutes and this one is no exception.  It's great if you are short on time and need to make something spectacular.  It does need some time to set up, but could be served immediately if you wanted to. 
I served it in wide mouth pint size jars, but you could make them in regular pint jars or a ramekin.  Really whatever you have on hand.  

I know I just shared a cheesecake recipe, but I couldn't help myself again!  These were too cute and incredibly yummy!
