Zesty Lime Cheesecake Bars

I love the addition of lime juice and zest to these cheesecake bars because they bring some zing to the creaminess. The graham cracker crust has some added cinnamon to really give it a nice dimension. This is an excellent dessert for barbecues and picnics when you want something decadent like cheesecake, without the need of forks and plates. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 12 bars

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  2. Pour in the melted butter and stir to form a soft dough.
  3. Press dough into a 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake for about 20 minutes, until lightly brown.
  4. While the crust is baking, beat the softened cream cheese until fluffy.
  5. Pour in 1 cup granulated sugar and beat until well combined.
  6. Add the eggs and heavy cream (or sour cream). Mix until combined.
  7. Beat in lime juice and lime zest, scraping down the sides.
  8. Pour the batter onto the baked crust.
  9. Even out the batter so it's completely level. Bake until set, about 25 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the filling reads 180 F.
  10. Remove from the oven and cool at room temperature for 30-60 minutes before slicing. Refrigerate until ready to serve, dust with powdered sugar.

Oh, if you go the heavy cream route, try 1/2 cup lime juice first. If you do sour cream, the 3/4 should be on the money. Just don't go so far that the filling is runny :)
