Lemon curd is one of those things that seems complicated to make, but is in fact, super easy. Today I’m sharing another use for this delicious spread. On mini cheesecakes! I add a bit of lemon zest to my creamy cheesecake filling and bake it over a buttery NILLA Wafers crust.

Lemon Curd Cheesecakes With NILLA Wafer Crust
1 1/2 c. NILLA Wafers crumbs
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 T. lemon zest
1 batch of homemade lemon curd (recipe found here)
1 1/2 c. whipped topping
lemon slices for garnish
NILLA Wafers are so versatile and perfect for desserts! Scoop with them, use them as a crust, layer them with pudding, ice cream, or mousse. Or just eat them plain! That’s my favorite way to enjoy them. Plain with a glass of cold milk. I remember snacking on them when I was in elementary school. Some things just don’t go out of style.
Combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir in lemon zest.
