Key Lime Cheesecake I240 Reviews
“My favorite dessert to make has to be cheesecakes. This is just one of many that gets 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!” - by BLUEKAT76
Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch cheesecake
- Combine cookie or graham cracker crumbs with butter or margarine. Press into bottom and partially up sides of 9 inch springform pan. Refrigerate.
- 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 overbeat, or cake will crack during baking. Pour batter into prepared crust.
- 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.
- 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.

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."

"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 ..." See morecake 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."
