Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes

I don’t like this whole being-a-mom-of-an-almost-grown-ass-person-thing. 
‘Cause that shit is a little painful.
My son moved out today and it almost doesn’t seem real. I don’t understand; how did he go from being 6 years old and bringing me flowers from the neighbor’s yard to….living on his own in what seems like such a short period of time? So, I had about 17 mini panic attacks when we got home from helping him move. 

What if he doesn’t lock the door at night? What if he leaves the oven on? What if he gets sick and doesn’t tell me and doesn’t go to the doctor? Nobody prepared me for this. Unfortunately, there’s no handbook given to you in the delivery room.

Anyway, one of his very favorite desserts is key lime cheesecake, and I made these a while back at his request. I find it’s easier to make cheesecake in “mini” form because they don’t seem as fragile during the baking process as making a whole cheesecake.

  1. If you’re looking for a replacement son, I’ve got someone I am more than willing to send your way. He’ll eat you out of house and home and you’ll have to beat his ass to keep him from scarfing all of those wonderful (mini) cheesecakes.
