If you enjoy Key Lime Pie you will love this cheesecake


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.

I have made a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for them before but wanted to try a new recipe. This is what I found <img src="file:///C:/Users/Kathleen%20D%27Amour/Pictures/2009/July/20090727%20Cheesecake/IMG_5654.JPG" alt=""><a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/White-Chocolate-Raspberry-Cheesecake/Detail.aspx">http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/White-Chocolate-Raspberry-Cheesecake/Detail.aspx </a><br><br>Of course no one ever thinks to save a slice of the cake for the baker so I can't personally say if it was good or not. Though I did hear that it was well liked and my husband brought home the empty cake container. The fact that&nbsp; it vanished in one afternoon is proof to me that it must have been good. My husband did say he had a slice and enjoyed it. <br><br><span style="text-decoration: underline; font-weight: bold;">Ingredients</span><br><ul><li> 1 cup of chocolate cookie crumbs (I used Oreo cookies)<br></li><li> 3 tablespoons of white sugar</li><li> 1/4 cup of butter, melted</li><li> 1 (10 ounce) package of frozen raspberries</li><li> 2 tablespoons of white sugar</li><li> 2 teaspoons of cornstarch</li><li> 1/2 cup of water</li><li> 2 cups of white chocolate chips</li><li> 1/2 cup of half-and-half cream</li><li> 3 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened</li><li> 1/2 cup of white sugar</li><li> 3 eggs</li><li> 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract</li></ul><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Directions</span><br>The original recipe did not mention anything about precooking the crust so I added those directions in.<br><ol><li><span> Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and melted butter. (I greased the pan first and placed a piece of parchment paper on top and then greased the paper.)Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan. I then baked the crust for ten minutes.</span></li><li><span> In a saucepan, combine the raspberries, 2 tablespoons of sugar, cornstarch, and the water. Bring it to a boil.&nbsp; Continue boiling the mixture for 5 minutes, or until the sauce is thick. Strain the sauce through a mesh strainer to remove seeds.(I found this to be the most tedious aspect of this. I think I needed a bigger strainer.)<br></span></li><li><span>&nbsp;In a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water(double boiler), melt the white chocolate chips with half-and-half, stirring occasionally until smooth. </span></li><li><span> In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Blend in the vanilla and melted white chocolate. Pour half of the batter over the crust. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the raspberry sauce over the batter. Pour the remaining cheesecake batter into the pan, and again spoon 3 tablespoons of raspberry sauce over the top. Swirl the batter with the tip of a knife to create a marbled effect. </span></li><li><span> Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until filling is set. Cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8 hours before removing from pan. Serve with remaining raspberry sauce. </span></li></ol><br><br><br><img src="file:///C:/Users/Kathleen%20D%27Amour/Pictures/2009/July/20090727%20Cheesecake/IMG_5654.JPG" alt="">
