SWEET LIME -PASSION FRUIT CHEESECAKE PIE


This is a lovely combination which came up as I

was running short of lime in the wee morning

on Sunday .

Desserts like this should be made a day in

advance. Anyway, there was no difference in

making couple of hours before lunch .

You can fill an unbaked pie shell or make a

crust with digestive biscuits .

Today I made a crust with biscuits .

So here’s to the recipe

INGREDIENTS

For the crust

200 gm digestive biscuits

2 tbsp butter melted

2 tbsp sugar/ honey

Mix all the ingredients in a food processor .( The biscuits should be crushed fine )

Press on a buttered spring form mould or pie

mould and allow to set in the refrigerator ,till

the filling is made .

For the filling

100 gm butter

1 cup cottage cheese /cream cheese

1 tbsp grated rind of sweet lime

Juice of 1 sweet lime

3/4 cup- 1 cup sugar

4 eggs

1/4 cup cream( room temperature)

1 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla

METHOD

•Beat butter and sugar till creamy.

•Add cheese,lime juice, rind and beat lightly.

•Add one egg at a time and beat.

•Next fold in rest of the ingredients,and pour

into the prepared crust/ pie.

•Bake in a moderate oven ( 180C ) for 35

minutes .

It might look jiggly ,but don’t worry it will set in

the fridge after a few hours.

You can serve this dessert warm too.

Serve with cream or by itself .

Topping: Passion fruit concentrate poured over

while serving

Any choice of your topping will match this

dessert.

The top cracked while transferring so don’t

mind the photo .I forgot to take the ‘out of oven’

photo as I was too busy 😊

This is a cheesecake with no cream cheese,or

any kind of cheese.Wonderful in taste and
