MAKES 12
Prep Time: 25 min (plus freezing)
Cook Time: 5 min

  • 2 sticks (8 ounces) butter
  • 3 cups salted pretzels, finely crushed
  • 1 cup plus 6 tablespoons sugar
  • Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • Grated peel of 3 limes, plus 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons white rum
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint, plus sprigs for garnish
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  1. In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Stir in the pretzels and 2 tablespoons sugar and cook until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly. Press about 2 tablespoons into the bottom of each cup of a 12-cup muffin pan. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in the remaining 1 1/4 cups sugar on low speed, then gradually mix in the lime peel, lime juice, rum and chopped mint.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly among the muffin cups; smooth the tops. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  5. To serve, run a wet knife around each cake, then invert the pan onto a clean work surface. Set each cake upright and top with a mint sprig.

    The recipe tastes good, but I was disappointed at the proportions given. This made WAY too much filling for 12 muffin cups and even too much crust. I was able to fill an 8 x 8 casserole with the remaining crust and filling.
