Lime Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Gail Doyle

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.
