Lime Wired Pie.

So, this went better than expected. I played with a recipe I had on hand for a cheesecake and doctored it into a key lime version for another Country Roads office lunch. It was a hit! One particular co-worker was cleaning the excess from the spatula I used to serve everyone. Good to the last drop!

Now, instead of serving with whipped cream or a sour cream topping, I sugared down fresh Ponchatoula strawberries. That really made it.

Key Lime Cheesecake

1 graham cracker crust

4 limes, juiced and zested

16-ounces cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 eggs

In a stand mixer, beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Once combined, add the lime juice and zest. Once incorporated, pour filling into pie crust. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes or until the center is set. Watch closely since the top of the pie will brown. Allow to cool completely and then refrigerate before serving.
