    • ⅔ cup crushed graham crackers (4 full crackers)
    • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
    • 2 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
    • 2 tablespoons Key lime juice
    • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
    • ¼ cup powdered sugar
    • 2 cups frozen light whipped topping, thawed
    • 16 thin slices Key lime


  • 1 Combine crushed graham crackers and melted butter in a small bowl. Divide the mixture among eight 4-oz. jars, pressing lightly with the back of a spoon.
  • 2 Beat cream cheese in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Beat in lime juice and vanilla. Beat in sugar until smooth. Fold in about ½ cup whipped topping to lighten the mixture, then fold in the remaining topping.
  • 3 Transfer the filling to a heavy sealable plastic bag. Snip a 1-inch hole in a bottom corner of the bag and pipe the filling into the jars. Top each with several lime slices.
  • 4 Put on the lids. Tote the jars with an ice pack or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
