Notes about this recipe

  • redjanet on December 27, 2012

    I made this one time for my parents when they were visiting (they're from NY and I live in London) as cheesecake is one of their favourite desserts. They're used to the more traditional vanilla-flavoured type, but this has a twist of lime which adds a refreshing tang. Overall, I liked it, though I have to admit that I didn't make the meringue topping as I just don't find toppings very necessary with cheesecake.

    This is a really easy recipe, and the actual preparation is fast. The finished product looks great and I love the meringue topping. It has a good citrus flavour and is not too sweet, with a smooth creamy texture. Mine took about 15 minutes longer than the recipe said to cook. I wouldn't call this a NYC cheesecake though...it's more a lime/lemon meringue pie/cheesecake. It's great served with vanilla icecream and fresh berries.
