I was craving a little summer so I created these little dandy's!!
  AND YES...
these little cheesecakes SCREAM summer to me. I love the hint of lime and 
the fact that they are "mini" means I can eat more, right?! THEY are my favorite bite sized
treat right now...YES, they have even beat out my chocolate cake...they are THAT good!!

SCRUMPTIOUS through and through, from first bite to the last!!!!!
