      This cheesecake is simply WONDERFUL! I topped it with kiwi and blueberries instead of stawberries. I'll try the strawberries next time, and there WILL be a next time. Because the texture of this cheesecake is so fluffy, it falls apart when you cut it. Consequently, it would be a good candidate for individual cheesecakes. I think I'll go with that next time, so the presentation is prettier. The flavor and light texture make this a delight to the tastebuds! I used Zylitol instead of sugar, which worked out fine. I also sub'd lime oil for the lime zest, which also was fine. (Lime oil is different than lime extract I think.) I wrapped the pan in foil and baked it in a water bath. It didn't seem done when the time was up, so I left it in the still warm oven (heat off) for an extra 15 min. or so. That did the trick.

      The only thing wrong with this cheesecake is that it was FLUFFY! My family and I prefer a thick and creamy cheesecake, but that's not a big deal--next time I simply won't add the egg whites. The flavor was great, and so was the sauce! Great for summer! Thanks so much! Definitely a keeper!!

      Super Scrumptious! Instead of the strawberry butter I made a compote of tangelo, orange, kiwi, and mango to go on top, and let me tell you - it's to die for!
