Directions

  1. Using a food processor, process graham crackers into fine crumbs. Add sugar and butter and pulse until mixture is evenly moistened.
  2. Divide graham cracker mixture evenly into a 12-cup muffin tin. Press down to create a firm crust. Place muffin tin in freezer until crusts are firm.
  3. Over low heat, combine heavy cream and sugar. Stir until sugar has dissolved, then bring to a boil.
  4. Remove from heat. Add lemon zest and juice and stir to combine. Let mixture cool for at least 30 minutes before pouring into mini graham cracker crusts. Refrigerate to set for at least two hours.
  5. Garnish with raspberries before serving cold.
