    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This is a delightful and refreshing dessert. I found a recipe 15 years ago that is similar to mine, but I modified it to have a very good blend between the lime juice and sugar. My crust enhances the taste of the cheesecake.

      These were a hit at a dinner party.The topping is wonderfully tart and the crust is particularly good - plan to use the crust for other goodies. Thanks.

      Very good! Although I used regular limes, it was slightly too tart for me, (key limes definitely would have been too tart for me), so next time I'll add an extra tablespoon or so of sugar. I didn't make the crust as written, since I didn't have vanilla wafers on hand, but made a simple graham cracker crust instead. Next time I will try the original crust; it sounds really good!

      As you can tell from my picture, I added a little bit of green food coloring. I just liked the contrast of colors. They always get rave reviews. I like adding more cream cheese and an extra egg.
