Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe: This Easy Lime Cheesecake Recipe Is Creamy Perfection

Move over key lime pie, there's a new key lime dessert on the radar. This easy key lime cheesecake recipe is sweet, tart and creamy. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2 1/2 hours plus 4 hours to chill

Total Time: 2 hours and 45 minutes plus 4 hours to chill 

Ingredients

Crust

Filling

  • 4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons key lime juice (can substitute regular lime juice)
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons flour

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the crust, combine the graham crumbs, butter, sugar and salt. Press on the bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased springform baking pan. Wrap the bottom of the pan with aluminum foil and place it in a large roasting pan.
  2. To make the filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add the eggs and beat well. Add the sour cream, vanilla, key lime juice, lime zest and flour. Stir to combine. Pour the batter into the prepared crust.
  3. Pour water into the roasting pan until it comes halfway up the sides of the springform pan to create a water bath. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for about 1 1/2 hours, or until sides are set but center still wiggles a bit. Turn the oven off, open the door to release the heat and let the cheesecake stay in the oven 1 more hour. 
  5. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours. Garnish with fresh lime slices and whipped cream.

I love key lime pie so I know this is a real treat! 😍

I wonder if is there like a milk substitute that could be used I forgot the name of the cream cheese is a different name I used to buy it once in a while and also is there a sugar substitute that one could use I remember a friend of mine that lives in Boca Raton she says when they make it there it's definitely when they make it on up the East Coast towards New York Boston area so if there's a way or is this an original recipe I'd like to try it thanks
