Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons butter
12 chocolate wafers [Nabisco]
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 cup well-chilled heavy cream


Grease a 12 cup mini muffin pan with butter. Oven rack in middle position and set on 350.

Grind wafers to a fine powder in a food processor. Mix with 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Mix well and divide the crumbs among the cups. Firmly press onto the bottom and a little up the sides of the cups. Bake for 5 minutes, cool and GENTLY rotate the crusts to loosen and turn out onto a rack.

Beat together cream cheese, zest and remaining brown sugar. Beat till light.

In another bowl beat the cream just till it holds stiff peaks, stir about 1/3 of the whipped cream mixture into the cream cheese to lighten, then gently fold in remaining whipped cream just to combine.

Mound filling into crusts with a spoon or pipe it on, chill and garnish with a few chocolate shavings.
