Combine and spread on a sheet pan and bake at 325˚F until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Crumble and place into 6-8 glass jars (about 4-6 ounce each) pressing down well.

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

2 tablespoons heavy cream

6 tablespoons key lime or lime juice (freshly squeezed)
