Lime Sour Cream Cheesecake

Serves 8
by Tenina Holder

My last son...(of four) has left home for two years to live in Milan Italy. (Tough, but someone has to do it right?) So of course we had a little par-tay. With the fam, and 50 of our nearest and dearest. An indoor/outdoor kind of afternoon/evening chicken and salad, and lots of little desserts to choose from. It was crazy. I made this recipe as a bit of a tweak on the Classic Lemon Cheesecake that appears in Keeping it Simple...available here. I made them in little disposable pots for convenience, but I did one larger individual with a spring form tin I have...so cute. However, you can just as easily use your standard sized spring form tin, quanitites will not vary, thickness of the layers will. Fresh, summery and very easy. What are you waiting for?
