    Gail Doyle's Note:

    I first had this cake at a dive resterant where they charged over $4.00 a piece and their meals were only $5.50. You had to be there fast to get a piece, too. Even writing this recipe makes me very hungry! Can use 1/3 cal. cream cheese but NOT fat free. It doesn't work.

      I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I am guessing that the reason this recipe did not turn out for a couple of people is because it calls for "juice from three limes" instead of a specific measurement. Three large limes could water down the recipe a lot more than 3 small ones and make it too wet to cook through. It sounds good, though! I am going to try making it with small limes.

      What a disaster! The center of this cheesecake would not set no matter how long I left it in the oven. I used 25% less fat cream cheese, so that was not the problem. The flavour was nice but 90% went down my garberator. Luckily I made this for family (bad enough) and not a special occasion. Do not waste your time or money - there are too many good cheesecake recipes out there.

      I absolutely loved this cheesecake. We had this for dessert after a mexican meal. I used light cream cheese and I wasn't sure what a wafer crust was so I used an Oreo crumb crust. I was worried that the sour cream topping wouldn't be sweet enough but it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe. Rita
