Lime Cheesecake

Hubby loves cheesecake so when I was making a joint birthday cake for him and a friend I decided to use up a heap of limes and other ingredients that I had on hand.  This was super creamy and tasty!






















Lime Cheesecake

Ingredients:
  • 250g dry sweet biscuits (any type, good to experiment with what you have)
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 1/4 cup icing mixture
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 250g cream cheese, soft
  • Juice from 5-6 limes
  • Zest from a couple of limes

Method:
  1. Spray a 20cm spring form cake tin with spray oil.
  2. Blitz up the dry biscuits in a food processor and mix with melted butter.
  3. Press mixture into the prepared tin firmly and sit in fridge.
  4. With a hand beater, food processor, bellini or thermomix, whip the cream, icing mixture and vanilla until thickened, take out 2-3 tablespoon for top decorations if you want.
  5. Add condensed milk and cream cheese and beat until combined and no lump in mixture.
  6. Add juice from the limes and mix together well.
  7. Pour onto base and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours. 
  8. Decorate with the whipped cream and zest
I used lattice biscuits for my base as thats all I had in the cupboard and surprisingly it came out quite nice and light and flaky!  Experimenting with what you have on hand pays off!

ENJOY! :-)
