I made this pie very quickly one night after work to take to my sister for her birthday. It was super easy and she reports back, pretty tasty! This is a fun twist on regular cheesecake.
Graham crust, lime cheesecake and topped with Cool Whip!
Key Lime Cheesecake Pie from the Kraft Website – no changes
- 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. grated lime zest
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (one lime for me)
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 Graham Pie Crust (6 oz.)
- 1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese, sugar, peel, juice and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; mix just until blended.
POUR into crust.
BAKE 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Top with whipped topping just before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
Before baking and after. This puffs up a bit in the oven.
After the pie has cooled in the fridge, top with about one cup of Cool Whip or fresh whipped cream.
Enjoy! I hope you liked this for your birthday sister!!
