    PCrocker's Note:

    This cheesecake is cool, creamy, and slightly tangy. It is the perfect dessert to serve after a spicy meal. It is really the perfect dessert to serve after any meal! Key lime juice can be found bottled in the grocery store.

      Excellent! I loved the cooking method. I think the 30 minutes in the off oven made it turn out perfectly. I did not have any problem with cracking, as I have in the past with cheesecakes. Overall, great recipe.

      The first key lime cheescake I've ever tasted was about a month ago and I've been searching for the recipe ever since... and I'm happy to say that I think I've found it!! This was a great recipe. Thanks! I'll be sharing this with a bunch of my friends.

      Yummy! Had to scrape last tablespoon of sour cream out of container, but still turned out great. Don't have a springform pan; used ready-made 9" graham cracker crust and it almost overflowed. Will definitely be buying one so I can make this again, and other cheesecakes as well! Thank you.
