“My favorite dessert to make has to be cheesecakes. This is just one of many that gets a lot of requests. It is sweet and tangy just like its more familiar cousin, the pie. I usually serve it with whipped cream and lime slices. Enjoy!”

Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch cheesecake

Directions

  1. Combine cookie or graham cracker crumbs with butter or margarine. Press into bottom and partially up sides of 9 inch springform pan. Refrigerate.
  2. In a large bowl, beat with an electric mixer the cream cheese, sugar, lime peel, and cornstarch until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, blending just until smooth. Add key lime juice with mixer on low. Finish mixing by hand. Do not over beat, or cake will crack during baking. Pour batter into prepared crust.
  3. Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 55 to 65 minutes, or until set. To minimize cracking, place a shallow pan half full of hot water on lower rack during baking.
  4. Turn oven off, and let cheesecake stand in oven 30 minutes with the door open at least 4 inches. Remove from oven. Refrigerate cake overnight, and up to three days.

This recipe was a hit. I did change it quite a bit as I am a huge cook so I tend to do that. I wanted a bit taller cheesecake so I add 8 oz more cream cheese. Instead of the sugar, eggs and flour, I used a can of sweetened condensed milk. I cut the lime juice to 1/2 cup as the other reviews said it was a bit tart. I also put a thin layer of whip cream made with heavy whipping cream and sugar just to add a little something. I decorated it with slices of lime. I made it for a Christmas party so everyone was glad to not have the traditional stuff they were having at every other party.

EXCELLENT... with these revisions! Make crust as described. Use 32 oz cream cheese (4 bricks) 1 1/4 C. sugar, 1 T. cornstarch, 4 eggs, 1 T. lime zest. Here's the key - 1/3 C. lime juice, 1/3 C. lemon juice. Absolutely delicious. Top with a pint of heavy cream whipped with a couple of tablespoons of sugar. Garnish with lime zest and lime slices. It's even better after it's been in the fridge for a day! YUMMY!

I made this cheescake for my brothers birthday party and everyone FLIPPED for it! I added a few tablespoons of shredded coconut to the crust and it went over big! I took the suggestions to bake the cake a little longer and that worked well. After the cake was done baking I left the oven door open a bit, to make sure it was completely cooled before taking it out and I didn't have any cracking. I will be making this one again.
