No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake Cups

This is a made up recipe. I bought the ingredients for something completely different that didn't work out the way I'd hoped. These are delicious and happy and summery. So make yourself a July treat.

Cupcake liners
8 oz cream cheese (room temp)
2 Tbs granulated sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
The zest of one lemon
Juice of half a lemon
2 cups whipped cream
7 or 8 Mothers Oatmeal Cookies (they're the ones with the icing on them)
4 Tbs Melted butter

Mix together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and juice of half a lemon
Fold in the whipped cream - gently and then fold in the lemon zest
This is your filling

For the crust -
Crush up the cookies as finely as you want
Melt half a stick of butter (4 tbs)
Mix with the cookie

In a cupcake tin, line with cupcake liners and firmly press about 1/4 to 1/2 and inch of crust into the bottom of each. Top with the cheese cake filling (as much as you want). Refrigerate for an hour to two hours and eat them outside on your back porch in the sun.
