No-Bake Meyer Lemon Cheesecake Mousse Cups

I went looking for something new and different to take to my Neighborhood Gal Pals Afternoon Card Game and I found this idea for a sweet treat. I already had these 6-ounce disposable dessert cups at Dollar Tree, but Mason Jars are a great larger serving size for the family. 

No-Bake Meyer Lemon Mousse Cups 

Makes 8-Half Pint Mason Jars or 12-6 ounce Dessert Cups  

Ingredients for the Mousse

2 C. Non-dairy Whipped topping (aka Cool Whip) 

1 C. Meyer Lemon Curd 

12 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature 

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract 

1 C. Powdered Sugar 

Ingredients for the Graham Cracker Crumb

½ C. Graham Cracker Crumb or 4 full sheets of Graham Crackers, crushed well 

2 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar 

2 Tbsp. Butter, melted  

In a large bowl, beat the Cream Cheese with a mixer until soft and fluffy. 

Add the Meyer Lemon Curd and combine well. 

Fold in the Non-dairy topping, set aside. 

In another bowl combine the Graham Cracker Crumb. 

To assemble

Spoon the Mousse filling into a large zip-top baggie and clip one of the corners, creating a piping bag. 

In each jar/dessert cup, start layering crumb-filling-crumb, etc to the desired finish, ie for the ½ pint jars create 3 layers of Crumb and 2 layers of Mousse & for the dessert cups only 2 layers of Crumb to 1 layer of Mousse. 

Cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill until you’re ready to serve. 

Cook for your friends and family!  

Remember, a recipe is simply someone else’s idea, take it and make it your own.
