Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe
serves 10

• 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
• 6 tablespoons butter melted
• 24 ounces cream cheese softened
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 3 eggs
• 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
• 2/3 cup key lime juice

Combine cookie or graham cracker crumbs with butter. Press into bottom and partially up sides of 9 inch pan. Then set it aside to refrigerate.
Beat with an electric mixer the cream cheese, sugar, lime peel and cornstarch until smooth in a large bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add key lime juice with mixer on low. Finish mixing by hand and careful not to overbeat or the key lime cheesecake will crack during baking. Pour batter into prepared crust.
Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 50-60 minutes or until set. To minimize cracking, place a shallow pan half full of hot water on lower rack during baking.
Turn oven off, and let key lime cheesecake stand in oven 30 minutes with the door open at least 4 inches. Remove from oven. Refrigerate key lime cheesecake overnight.

Serve and enjoy the Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe Dessert
