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!!
May the splinters never point in the wrong direction!
