Lemonade Dessert

So cool & refreshing for summer.

Ritz Cracker Crust
100 Ritz Crackers
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, melted

My food processor makes the best cracker crumbs...
or you can crush them in a bag with your rolling pin.
Mix in the powdered sugar.

Melt the butter.
Don't forget to cover your glass container 
to prevent spatters inside your microwave.
The butter wrapper is perfect for this task!

With the processor running, pour in the melted butter through the feeder tube.
Mix thoroughly. You can mix this by hand, as well.

Scoop about 1/8 cup crust mixture into your lined muffin tin cups.
Reserve some crumb topping for the garnish.

Using your tart maker, or the backside of a spoon,
form a crust on the bottom and up the sides of your muffin cups.

Now you are ready to make the filling.

Lemonade Filling
12 ounces frozen lemonade
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
16 oz. container whipped topping

Mix lemonade and condensed milk. 
Fold in the whipped topping.

Fill Ritz crusts with Lemonade Filling.

Sprinkle reserved crumbs on top.

So perfect for these hot summer days, 
as you don't need to heat your oven!

And the lemon is a fabulous contrast 
with the rich chocolate cheesecake cups.
