July 31, 2017

Refreshing lime comes to the rescue during the dog days of summer. Served chilled on a hot summer night, these tangy cheesecake squares are the perfect end to any meal.

Ingredients

Gingersnap Crust

  • 16 ounces (two 8-ounce packages or about 3 cups) gingersnap cookies, finely ground
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1-and-1/2 sticks) butter, melted

Lime Cheesecake Filling

  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened-condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice (3 to 5 limes, depending on size)
  • Zest of one lime

Preparation

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix cookie crumbs with melted butter until blended. Press mixture into a 9-by-13-inch pan and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool until barely warm.

While the crust bakes, in a medium-sized bowl beat cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Beat in condensed milk, lime juice and zest. Pour mixture into nearly-cooled crust.

Bake 25 minutes, cool completely until set and serve or chill in the refrigerator. Serve with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and garnish with a paper-thin slice of lime.

Easy and delicious.  My ginger snaps weren't so gingery, so I added 1/2 tsp of powdered ginger to the crust.  I also added the zest of an additional lime to the filling since my limes were small, and I wanted the filling good and zesty.
