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
MMMmmmm! This was excellent! I used 2 packages of low-fat cream cheese and 1 package of fat-free. I wouldn't have done this, but that was all I had and didn't want to run back to the store. Anyway, the results were great and my family's already asking me to make it again! Thanks so much!
Don't know what I did wrong, but this was a complete flop for me. The filling made enough for two pie crusts, and even then, it raised to the point that half of both pies went to the floor of my oven. An hour and 20 minutes later I removed pies and they still weren't done. Didn't get far enough to make sour cream topping.
