Cool Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Publisher Photo
I started baking this treat several years ago, and it immediately won raves. The mixture of tart lime and sweet creamy cheesecake is absolutely scrumptious. At any get-together, it's a show-stopping dessert that's always enjoyed.

I wanted to make a cheesecake dessert for our monthly office luncheon, which was featuring a Mexican theme, and lime was the first thing that came to mind. This is the first cheesecake recipe I've come across that had sour cream in it and I thought the silky texture and the tartness of the lime really complimented each other. It received a number of compliments and there were no left-overs. I thought the recipe was quite easy. My advice to anyone whose batter is lumpy and sticks to the bowl, you need to soften the cream cheese a lot more. My cream cheese was super soft and I had no trouble.

This actually took alot longer to bake- at least in my oven. I love Key Lime Pie and I love Cheesecake- I think the two are better off not meeting in the same pie!
