Individual Lime Cheesecakes

This is one of my favs - I always get requests to bring to parties. So easy too. Not so healthy though. :)
Recipe from Sandra Lee (love that lady!)

-1 block (8 ounces) cream cheese (recommended: Philadelphia), softened
-1/2 cup sugar
-3 tablespoons lime curd (recommended: Dickensons) *I always have a harder time finding this - it is in a -jar and I have had the best luck finding it at Target in the past.
-6 mini graham cracker crusts (recommended: Keebler)
-Whipped topping (recommended: Cool Whip)
-Sugared lime slices, for garnish

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in the lime curd on low speed until just combined.
Spoon the mixture into the graham cracker crusts. Place on a small baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes. Serve with a dollop of whipped topping and 1/4 of a slice of lime that has been sprinkled with sugar.
