How to make it

  • To make Crust:
  • In a bowl mix together graham cracker crumbs, 2 Tablespoons sugar and 1/4 cup butter.
  • Pat the mixture into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the side of a buttered 10 inch springform pan.
  • Bake the crust in a preheated 375 degree F (190 degree C) oven for 8 minutes.
  • Transfer the pan to a rack and cool.
  • In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Beat in sour cream, flour, lime juice and vanilla.
  • Beat the mixture until it is smooth.
  • Pour the filling over the cooled crust.
  • Bake the cheesecake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes, reduce the temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and bake for 50 to 55 minutes longer, or until center is barely set.
  • Let the cheesecake cool on a wire rack, then chill covered, overnight. Remove the cheesecake from the pan and transfer it to a cake plate or stand.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and a twist of lime!
