Lime Cheesecake Recipe no bake Ingredients
Graham Cracker Crust 10 oz graham crackers or about 20 crackers (1 1/2 cups) 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted Filling 24 oz cream cheese (3 [8 oz] packages), softened 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 4 large eggs, room temperature 2 teaspoon lime zest (from about 3 limes) 1 cup sour cream
Prepare your baking pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Wraps the outside of a 9-inch springform pan with foil so that water will not leak into the pan when you place it in a water bath and set aside. In the bowl of a food processor or blender add crackers and process until they reach a fine crumb consistency. You may have to do this in batches depending on what type of machine you use. Add melted butter to crumbs and pulse until the mixture is moistened. Pour crumbs into the prepared pan and press firmly and evenly with fingertips, the bottom of a measuring cup or the back of a spoon on the bottom and approximately 1″ up the sides of the springform pan. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool while you make your filling. In a bowl add softened cream cheese, sugar, flour, eggs, lime zest and sour cream. Mix by hand using a rubber spatula until combined well. Pour filling over the crust in a springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until the centre is almost set. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely at room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Before serving, run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake and remove the sides of the pan. Garnish with lime slices and fresh lime zest if desired.
