My mom was always trying to find the perfect Key Lime Pie recipe. Though I know it's popular, I wasn't a fan of any that she made. Then she made this Key Lime Cheesecake and I fell in love with it! It's one of those special recipes that I'll be making for years to come. I've only made it with regular limes, but it's probably even better if key limes are sold near you. If you like cheesecake and tart desserts, you've got to give this a try!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine the crust ingredients in a blender and blend. Then press into the bottom and sides of a 81/2 x 9" spring form pan.
  3. Combine the first 5 filling ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites and add the cream of tartar to form soft peaks. Fold this into the filling, and pour the combined ingredients into the crust.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 F.
  5. Cool and chill for 1 hour.
  6. Serve with the whipped cream, fresh berries, or both!

    I'm a big cheesecake fan...and this is my new favorite. The light, lime flavor cuts the richness of the cheesecake and makes this wonderfully refreshing!

      There is available Key Lime juice in a bottle from a brand called Nellie's.
      You could also look for True Limes which are smaller and green.
      Real Key Limes from the Florida Keys have a yellowish peel they might be the same as True Limes which didn't develop the color.
