Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 Springform Pan
  • 1 1/2 Cups Fine Ground Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Butter melted
  • Pinch of Salt

Filling

  • 2 8-ounce Packages Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Large Eggs at room temperature
  • 3/4 Cup White Sugar
  • Zest of 3 Limes
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Lime Juice about 2 large regular limes * see note
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 Teaspoon Corn Starch
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 9 x13" Pan
  • 3 Cups of Boiling Water
  • Whipped Cream For Serving if Desired

Triple Berry Sauce

  • 1 1/4 Cup Frozen Triple Berries with Blueberries Raspberries, Blackberries
  • Zest of 1/2 Lime
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cornaby's Ultra Gel or 1 Teaspoon Flour

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 300°.
  • In a small bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter and a pinch of salt. Pour all of the crumbs into the springform pan and using a measuring cup, press the mixture into the bottom of the pan, pressing the crumbs up along the sides as well.
  • Place in the oven for 10 minutes and remove to cool.

For the Filling

  • Using a hand-held electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sour cream and again, beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Add one of the eggs and beat the mixture. Add the final egg and beat again.
  • Add the sugar, lime zest, lime juice, cornstarch and vanilla and beat until smooth, being mindful to not over-beat as that will cause the cheesecake to crack.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared crust.
  • Prepare the boiling water.
  • Place the cheesecake into the oven on an upper middle rack.
  • Place the 9x13" pan on the lower rack and pour in the boiling water. Close the door and bake about 50-60 minutes or until the edges are set. You may notice a slight jiggle in the middle, that's ok.
  • Open the oven door, turn off the oven and allow to sit for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven to cool to room temperature.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

Berry Sauce

  • Place the frozen berries, sugar, and lime zest in a saucepan over medium heat. If using flour, add it now.
  • Stir often until the berries start to breakdown, add the ultra gel and stir to combine until thickened.
  • Remove to a bowl to cool. Place in the refrigerator until serving.

Notes

Fresh lime juice works much better. To really juice those limes, roll them on the counter using the palm of your hand to break up the cells containing the juice.
