Key Lime Cheesecake

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Key Lime Cheesecake
3 bars (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
zest of 1 lime
1/2 cup key lime juice
3 large eggs
Sweetened Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
lime zest or slices for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Position the oven racks so one is just above the middle position and the other is just below the middle position. Lightly spray a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the graham cracker crumbs are evenly coated. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides (about 1/2" up) of the prepared springform pan.
  • Bake the crust for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely while you prepare the filling.
  • In a large bowl with an electric mixer, or in the bowl of an electric stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, cornstarch and lime zest together until smooth and creamy. Scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the key lime juice and mix until combined. Add the eggs and mix until just combined. Over mixing can cause the cheesecake to crack while baking because of all the extra air beat into the filling, so be sure to mix just until combined and creamy.
