Key Lime Pie In Cheesecake Form? You've Got to Try This Dessert

Ingredients: – 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumb – 1/4 cup granulated sugar – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted – 3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened – 1 cup granulated sugar

– 3 large egg – 1 tablespoon lime zest – 1/2 cup fresh key lime juice (or regular lime juice) – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – Whipped cream, for garnish – Lime slices, for garnish

Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan with butter or non-stick spray. 

Prepare Crust: Mix graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and melted butter in a bowl. Press the mixture evenly into the springform pan's bottom. After baking for 10 minutes, let the crust cool while you make the filling.  

Make Filling: In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and 1 cup of granulated sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the lime zest, lime juice, and vanilla extract until well combined. 

Bake Cheesecake: Pour the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust in the springform pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly. 

Chill: Once baked, remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Then, transfer it to the refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to set. 

Serve: When ready to serve, release the sides of the springform pan and transfer the cheesecake to a serving platter. Garnish with whipped cream and lime slices for an extra pop of flavor and visual appeal. 

Enjoy: Slice and serve this delightful Key Lime Pie Cheesecake to your delighted guests or indulge in a slice yourself!
