It isn't a Cinco de Mayo without some kind of fun dessert, and these tequila lime cheesecake bites fit the bill perfectly. They're simple, no bake, and just boozy enough without going overboard!

Step 1
Get out an 8x8 pan and line it with parchment paper, with a little hanging over the sides.
Step 2
Mix the Graham Crackers (10), Dark Brown Sugar (3 tablespoon), Ground Cinnamon (1/4 teaspoon) and Butter (8 tablespoon) together in a bowl until it is like wet sand.
Step 3
Press it into a firm crust in the bottom of the baking dish and freeze it for 15 minutes.
Step 4
While it freezes, make the filling. Stir the Cream Cheese (1 pound), Tequila (3 tablespoon), Lime (2), Granulated Sugar (1 cup), Sea Salt (1 teaspoon) and Vanilla Extract (1/2 teaspoon) together until smooth and luscious.
Step 5
Evenly spread that cheesecake mixture over the cold crust and put the baking tray back in the freezer to freeze for at least 2 hours until solid. This makes it easier to cut.
Step 6
Remove the cheesecake from the tray by lifting it out by the parchment and transferring it to a cutting board.
Step 7
Peel away the parchment carefully and make 5 equal cuts both vertically and horizontally. This will yield 36 cute little bites. Keep them in the refrigerator until you want to serve them, and enjoy!!
