Lemon Bites

There is no better way to celebrate the month of May than with a No-Bake dessert; especially a lemon dessert. Lemons make the lightest and most refreshing indulgence. What is so nice about this dessert is it can be made in individual servings of 4-6, so there is not a 9×12 pan full of yum sitting around to tempt when only a few people are gathering.

Make and refrigerate this treat at least 3 hours in advance and eat the same day.

 

NO BAKE LEMON OREO CHEESECAKE BITES

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12 Lemon Oreo Cookies crushed into crumbs
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • zest of two lemons
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons lemon Jello powder
  • 1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed (see note below)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
  3. Add lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla and mix to combine.
  4. Sprinkle the Jello powder onto the cream cheese mixture and mix on medium-high speed until thoroughly combined.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended and no streaks remain.
  6. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  7. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping and lemon wedges.
