This is from my dogs groomer. It is so light and refreshing with just a subtle lime flavor. It goes great after a big holiday meal. Cook time below is refrigerator time.

Delicious cream cheesecake! Light flavor and pleasing texture. We are only two here now, so I cut the recipe in half and made an 8X8 pan. I am not a very patient person, so I dissolved the jello in 3/4 cup of boiling water and then added ice cubes to the one cup mark, stirring until they were mostly melted and then removing the remaining ice. Then about 5 minutes in the frig and it was ready to use in the cheesecake. I was thinking this would be good with lemon flavored gelatin, and my husband suggested cherry flavored gelatin for a cherry cheesecake.

Absolutely wonderful. Creamy and light texture. I took this to a camera club event and one of the judges called for a copy of the recipe. Thanks for a keeper. I think other flavors would be fun to try.
