Key lime cheesecake looks awesome! I could see why it’s the best yet.

Can you share a recipe for that?

Read the posts... He posted his basic recipe....
Found the basic recipe on post #43. I see I responded when the thread first started 2 years ago, probably why I got the notification.

I was just interested in the Key Lime in particular.

This was a bad idea to look at all these cheesecake pictures on an empty stomach. My stomach is growlin’!!

I tried making one and told the fellas it didn't come out looking like yours, but ended up being good. It didn't seem done and then, before I knew it, the outside was too done.

You inspired me. I was at the store yesterday and they had cream cheese .69 cents a block.

I moved a few months ago and I went looking for my springform pan in the garage. It didn't survive. It's kinda egg shaped now lol. But, I have a nice glass tart pan so here we went...

That's your basic mix (60% of each ingredient) because I will never eat more than a couple slices. Cheesecake is something I get tired of super quick.

The blueberries are frozen. I did cook them down (1 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup sugar, 1.5 tsp cornstarch slurry) for about 3-4 minutes.

This is it out of the oven.

Little bit of chocolate chips in the bottom quadrant as an experiment.

My judgement is that I didn't cook it long enough. It's great on the edges, but a little gooey in the center. I baked it at 310 for 35 mins. Next one I'll go 40 at least. I did hit it with an instant read and turned the oven off when it hit 158ish and let it sit with the door cracked about 10 mins.

Flavor is great, just that gooeyish nature was kinda offsetting. The chocolate chips were a fail. The plain blueberry tastes better.

Haven't been on the site in awhile, I bake mine at 380 for about 15 min then take it down to 305 for about a hour and a half or a little more. Often I check temp of mine in the center with a thermometer so I'll have a little hole in the center sometimes but I'm ok with that. I look for a temp of around 156 si it gets to 160 or so. Time varies according to what kind I'm baking......have a couple new ones,
