Servings

Kaffir Lime Coconut Cream

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves (6 leaflets), center stem/vein removed (see tip)
  • 1 cup Thai Kitchen® Coconut Cream

Coconut Peanut Crust

Filling

  • 1 package (8 ounces) whipped cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • Zest of 1 lime, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, toasted

Instructions

  • For the Kaffir Lime Coconut Cream, place water, sugar and lime leaves in small saucepan on medium heat. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half. Stir in coconut cream. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove lime leaves and discard.

  • For the Crust, mix sugar, butter, ginger, salt and pepper in large bowl. Place peanuts and toasted coconut in food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Stir peanut mixture into butter mixture until evenly combined. Press about 2 tablespoons of peanut crust mixture into bottom of each of 12 paper-lined muffin cups (Use bottom of 1/4 cup measuring cup to press in crust, if desired.)

  • For the Filling, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Add Kaffir Lime Coconut Cream, heavy cream and 1 tablespoon of the lime zest; beat 2 minutes or until well mixed. Pour filling mixture evenly over crust in muffin cups. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and remaining lime zest. Cover and freeze overnight. Serve frozen.

  • Test Kitchen Tip: Kaffir lime leaves are shiny, thick, dark green leaves that grow in doubles—as two connected leaflets. The leaves provide a refreshing lemon-lime aroma and flavor typical of Thai cuisine. To get the maximum amount of flavor when using whole fresh leaves, remove the center stem/vein and discard. Dried leaves can be used whole. Kaffir lime leaves are available fresh, frozen or dried in Asian markets and online retailers.
