Key Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Hi guys! I haven’t been writing for you as much as I’d love to since school and ballet started. I sprained my ankle so things haven’t been easy lately. However, there’s nothing better than a recipe, am I right? This recipe was based on RecipeGirl's recipe, we made a few changes though.

This is the perfect recipe for a family dinner for six.

I hope you liked this recipe, it tasted better than most of the cheesecakes I've tried, the baking process is different and more similar to those American cheesecakes we all love.

I'll leave here a couple of pics.

(If you ever have to go to lunch on your grandparents' on a lovely Sunday, this is a great dessert for you to take!)
