Cookie Crust:

  • 15 oz lemon sandwich cookies
  • 3 tbs melted butter
  • 1 tbs sugar

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 16 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 tbs lime juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 small box lime gelatin size that serves 4
  • 16 oz heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's icing sugar


  • 1 sliced lime
  • Whipped cream if desired


Cookie Crust

  • Pulse the lemon cookies in food processor, until crushed. Add melted butter and sugar. Pulse to mix. Press the crushed cookie mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and and partway up the sides. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes until crust is firm.

Cheesecake Filling

  • Beat cream cheese, lime juice and sugar until well mixed. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, add 1 cup of boiling water to gelatin and stir to dissolve, then set aside to cool.
  • Whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Take care not to go to far, to a butter stage.
  • Once gelatin has cooled and begun to thicken, fold it into the whipped cream and mix gently.
  • Then, fold in the cream cheese mixture until evenly blended. Fill crust with the cheesecake mixture, spreading to even out if necessary. Top with lime slices and additional whipped cream if desired. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until firm.
