Lime Baked Cheesecake

I recently hosted my 5th Bookalokal Murder Mystery Dinner party recently… and have realised that my *trademark* is serving cheesecake for dessert.

I have served a Black & White Oreo Cheesecake, Chocolate cheesecake and a berry ripple cheesecake – amongst others.

So when I found a recipe for a Lemon baked cheesecake in the BBC Good Food Magazine (March 2009 issue) – I knew that this would be another one for me to adapt & try out with the Bookalokal guests!!

I swapped out the lemon for lime… and I did not use the topping suggestion that they had created (sour cream with lemon curd and then topped with raspberries). I also decided to use chocolate digestive biscuits for the base and then served the cheesecake with chocolate finger biscuits (as I am a fan of mixing citrus & chocolate together!!)

This was a really simple cheesecake to put together and I would consider trying it again.
