Key Lime Cheesecake

Recipe by dojemi

This is one of my easiest (and most sinfully delicious!) cheesecakes, and it freezes well.

I made this cheesecake for a birthday dinner dessert.I followed the directions and ingredients,but I'm sorry Dojemi it wasn't what I was hoping for...I just thought it was too tangy, I thought it needed more sugar or something.
