A Great Summer #Recipe -- Lime Cheesecakes

Lime Cheescake, a great summer treat--Hi, all.  I haven't posted a recipe for a while.  In this season of fresh produce, beautiful flowers and fluttering butterflies, I thought I'd share a new favorite dessert.  A friend gave me this one for lime cheesecakes that are great for a summer picnic or gathering.  We had friends in and even the kids liked them!  For refreshing lime cheescakes, here is the recipe.

1 box vanilla wafers
2-3 limes, depending on size
2-8 ounce packs of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 8oz. tub of Cool Whip
18 muffin pan liners

Place liners in muffin pans. Add a vanilla wafer to each muffin cup.
Squeeze the juice from 1-2 limes, depending on how limey you'd like these!
In the mixer, mix softened cream cheese, sugar and juice from one lime until smooth.  Taste after mixing to see if you'd like more lime flavor.  Add a teaspoon more.  Too much will make the mixture too liquidy.  After mixed, fold in the 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip until it's all mixed.  Fill the muffin cups.  Refrigerate at least two hours.  Slice lime very thin and then cut in half.  Place a half slice on each cup before serving.

Another great way to serve this that I haven't tried yet is to buy a graham cracker pie shell and fill with lime-cheesecake filling.  Decorate with lime slices around the edges.  Perfect for a more formal get-together.
