Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Make the crust by combining the graham cracker crumbs with the butter and 1 tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Stir well enough to coat all of the crumbs with the butter.
  • Press the crumbs onto the bottom and about one half of the way up the sides of an 8-inch springform pan. You don't want the crust to to form all the way up the back of each slice of cheesecake.
  • Bake the crust for 5 minutes, then set it aside until you are ready to fill it.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine creamcheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add the lime juice and eggs and continue to beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour the filling into the pan.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes (if the top of the cheesecake is turning light brown, it's done).
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • When the cheesecake has come to room temperature, put it into the refrigerator.
  • Once the cheesecake has chilled, remove the pan sides and cut the cheese cake into 8 equal slices (or size of desire).
  • Serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream on top.

    A thing of beauty - how did you manage to even get a picture? I'm surprised it lasted that long! :)

    Thanks for the recipe, fellow Illinois-er!
