KEY LIME CHEESECAKE



Foodie Friday is hosted by Michael at Designs by Gollum. Check out her blog to see links to other blogs participating in Foodie Friday.

This month anything green is a go for me!! So what’s more green than something LIME…. Key Lime Cheesecake to be exact. You have to remember I live in the Midwest so we don’t have access year round to certain “fancy” ingredients. So, instead of using ‘key limes’, I used just regular limes. Also, I decided to make individual cheesecakes and used the pre-made individual graham crust shells, which come 6 to a package. You will need a minimum of 12 shells and depending on how you fill them, you made need a few more!

But most importantly, these taste GREAT!! The zest makes them a little tart, but that suits my taste buds. I made up a little raspberry puree to use as garnish, complimenting the lime taste perfectly. My oldest son decided to use some Hershey’s syrup on his, which suited him fine!



The recipe is from Allrecipes titled Key Lime Cheesecake 1
Top your cheesecake anyway you like; there are many flavors that meld well with lime. When in doubt, follow Marsha & Debbie’s outlook on life… CHOCOLATE ON EVERYTHING!!



As you slide down the banister of life,
May the splinters never point in the wrong direction!

Barb, Key Lime is a favorite of ours. We've had the real thing in the Keys. Yours looks fantastic. And who doesn't love raspberries. I don't think that I've ever seen the pre-made small graham cracker crust shells.

Another great picture with the winning ruby red... looks like a winner.

Hi Barb, Thanks for the comment you left on my Pink Saturday post. You should post your pink took kit! It seems that my hubby isn't the only scissor taker. I've had several comments about hubby's running off with the scissors. ☺ Diane

Oh Barb! My mom will be the lucky recipient of these delectable cheesecakes. Her very favorite dessert is Key Lime pie and the raspberry is a great addition. I'll take mine with chocolate :-) Your son and I will get along just fine. LOL
