Recipe: Easy No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake Shooters

Summary: This is my favorite no-bake lemon cheesecake recipe reformulated to work as shooters! It’s just the right about of fresh lemon tartness with sweet cream cheese. It calls of r super-fine sugar. Don’t have any? Process regular granular sugar in your food processor or blender. The texture of this no-bake cream cheese cake is much better and not grainy.

Don’t take a shortcut and use canned whipped cream like I tried to do – it doesn’t hold up. Use real whipped cream. Check out our other dessert bar recipes and tips.
