These were a big hit at the party. I had no leftovers.
24 key lime cooler cookies ( I used key lime twists from target and made a crust)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbls lime juice, preferable key lime
1 tsp lime zest
fresh sweetened whipped cream
mint leaves or lime zest, for garnish
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Fill 2 (12 muffin) mini muffin tins with paper cups and spray with cooking spray. Place 1 key lime cooler cookie in the bottom of eac. cup flat side down.
Prepare filling. beat together cream cheese, egg, sugar, lime juice, and zest until well mixed. Fill the cups to the top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove tarts to cool. When completely cool, fit a star tip in a pastry bag and fill with the whipped cream. Pipe the whipped cream on top of the tarts. Garnish with tiny mint leaves or lime zest.
