Key Lime Cheesecake Bars a Great Summertime Treat



These are easy and so very good. Everyone will love them.

Ingredients

6 squares low-fat honey graham crackers, finely crushed (about 1/2 a cup)
2 Tbsp. margarine, melted
1 tsp. sugar
1 small box of sugar-free lime-flavored gelatin
3/4 cup boiling water
1 16 oz container small curd cottage cheese
1 8 oz fat free cream cheese softened
1 8 oz container fat free whipped dessert topping
Key lime or just limes to put on top this is optional

In a bowl combine graham crackers, margarine, and sugar. Press crumb mixture in the bottom of a 9 X 9 square baking dish. Refrigerate while preparing filling. I double it and used a 9 x 13 pan.

In a bowl combine gelatin and water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. set aside.

In the blender combine cottage cheese and cream cheese. Cover and blend or process until smooth, stopping several times to scrape down sides. Whisk 1/2 cup of the cottage cheese mixture into the gelatin mixture. Whisk in remaining cottage cheese mixture until smooth. Fold in whipped dessert topping. Spoon filling over chilled crumb mixture.

Cover and refrigerate 8 to 24 hours. Cut into squares and top with a little piece of Key Lime or lime.

Sorry I didn't have more pictures of making this yummy dessert. I was making it in a hurry I forgot. I did remember at the end before eating it.
