I promised my friend Lisa that I would post this recipe for…
Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe
- 2 8oz packages cream cheese
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup lime or key lime juice
- 2 tsp lime zest
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 9-inch pre-made graham cracker pie crust (or make your own) I always make my own
- fresh fruit for garnish (optional)
Preparation:Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a blender or food processor, combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, lime juice and zest, and cornstarch. Process until smooth and creamy. Pour into pie crust. Place pan on cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 200°F (DO NOT forget to reduce temperature - very important) and continue baking 75 minutes or until center is almost set until cheesecake is lightly golden brown on top. Allow to cool completely, then chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
Serve topped with slices of fresh fruit if desired.
