Crust:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

Filling:

1 1/3 cups sugar
zest of 2 lemons

Directions:

  • In a medium bowl, mix together melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and 2 tbsp of sugar.
  • Press mixture evenly in a 10 inch tart pan across the bottom and up the sides. (I learned this trick from another blogger, use a small shot glass to help pack the crust easily.)
  • Bake crust for 5-8 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • In a medium bowl, using a whisk attachment, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside in the fridge..
  • In a separate large bowl, mix together the lemon zest and sugar until it becomes moist and fragrant. Add cream cheese, beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Fold in whipped topping until well blended.
  • Spoon the filling evenly into the crust. Smooth top using a spatula.
  • Top with berries and
  • Chill for at least 2 hours before serving, overnight is best.
  • Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
