Contributed by: Marilyn Spencer
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp. grated lime rind
  • 1/2 key lime juice
  • Strawberry halves and lime zest for garnish
  • For strawberry sauce
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. grated lime rind
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter, and press on bottom and 1 inch up sides of a greased 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 8 minutes; remove from oven and cool. Beat cream cheese at medium speed with a mixer until fluffy. Gradually add the sugar, beating until well-blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Stir in the sour cream, rind and juice. Pour batter into the crust. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake for one hour and five minutes. Turn off the oven, partially open the oven door and let stand in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately run a knife around the edge of the pan; cool completely in pan. Cover and chill for 8 hours; garnish with strawberry halves and lime zest or strawberry sauce.
