Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Step into spring with these light desserts. With strawberries, lemon and rhubarb, the recipes found here will have you ready for warmer weather in no time.

“I modified this old family Key Lime Cheesecake recipe so it uses healthier ingredients,” says Darlene Kohler of Flower Mound, Texas. “The texture is so smooth and light. It’s a favorite dessert that everyone enjoys.”

Warmer weather calls for a lighter dessert like these Springtime Strawberry Bars. The recipe makes a big batch, so it’s perfect for company.

“I’ve been told that this Lemon Meringue Angel Cake tastes exactly like a lemon meringue pie and that it’s the best angel food cake anyone could ask for,” shares Sharon Kurtz of Emmaus, Pennsylvania. “I’m not sure about all of that, but it is delightful to serve, and each slice is virtually fat free.”

"Wow!" is what you’ll hear when you serve this impressive dessert to company. "Festive Fruit Tart is not only pretty, it’s also easy to make," notes Nancy Adams of Hancock, New Hampshire.

"Since these Frosted Rhubarb Cookies freeze well, I make a lot of them during rhubarb season," says field editor Ann Marie Moch of Kintyre, North Dakota. "They are best when you use young tender stalks."
