Ginger-Lime Icebox Cheesecake

Directions

  1. Remove 2 tablespoons zest and squeeze 3/4 cup juice from limes. In a large bowl combine 1 Tbsp. of the zest, the juice, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Beat with a mixer on medium until smooth.
  2. In another large bowl beat cream on medium until soft peaks form (tips curl). Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture.
  3. Spread 1/2 cup of the cream mixture into a 9-inch springform pan and top with a single layer of cookies. Spread with 1 1/2 cups cream mixture and top with another layer of cookies. Repeat layering cream mixture and cookies two more times. Spread with remaining cream mixture. Reserve any remaining cookies for garnish. Cover; chill 8 to 24 hours.
  4. Remove sides of springform pan. Coarsely crush any remaining cookies and press onto sides of cheesecake. Top with remaining zest.

I took this to a pot luck and everyone asked for the recipe. Easy to make. I also crushed the ginger cookies a little finer.
A great summer dessert.

Maybe not as good as the real thing (limes and cream), but I found a key lime mix made by Wind and Willow that is not only fast, less expensive and probably less calories that I used instead of the recipe here. I just followed the recipe on the package and as I said, it was easy (super easy) and nearly as good. Of course I still had to crush the ginger snaps. Although I didn't, you can probably grate a lime for some zest to decorate the top and add a little more lime flavor.

I think I should have ignored the recipe and used a layer of cookies as the 1st layer. There was no information of how to crush the cookies, how fine? Did I need to refrigerate the cheesecake? How long? I NEEDED MORE COMPLETE RECIPE.
