READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by kate09

It is very nice for presentation. Tastes like a cross between cheesecake and key lime pie. I kind of whipped it up because I had to entertain guests and it makes for a nice presentation.

Thsi is a suggestion regarding the baking pan, not a review. I usualy line the pan with foil and have it overhang the edges. When cooled simply lift the "cake" out by the foil and cut as desired. No worries about edges sticking to pan, and it is easier to cut things once removed from the pan. HTH --- BTW, I've saved your recipe,sounds great; esp low in carbs! Lee
