This recipe comes from http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Two-Tone-Cheesecake but I have altered it to be a Key Lime Cheesecake.
Ingredients for the Cheesecake

Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tbsp of granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp of butter melted

Filling
  • 4 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups of granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup of lime juice

Topping
I used the rest of the heavy whipping cream and a few tablespoons of sugar to make homemade whipped cream. Be sure to place the bowl and mixing attachment into the freezer to chill before whipping the cream.
I also used a lime. I sliced it into coins and then rolled them in sugar before placing on top of the cheesecake.

Directions
  1. In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter. Press into the bottom of a greased 10 inch springform pan. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for ten minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in cream. Add eggs; beat on low speed until combined.
  3. Pour in the lime juice and mix until combined
  4. . Pour over the crust. Return the cheesecake to the baking sheet.Bake the cheesecake on a baking sheet at 325 degrees for 65-75 minutes or until center is almost set.
  5. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife round edge of pan to loosen. Cool one hour longer.Meanwhile, place the whipping cream in a chilled mixing bowl to mix.
  6. After the cream is whipped you can use a pipping bag and a tip to create a border on the cheesecake.
