Chocolate Lime Cheesecake

What a lovely surprise this one is. Truly a yummy dessert. White chocolate and fresh lime.

 

  • 2 pkgs. soft lady fingers
  • 2 pkg. softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup berry sugar
  • 7 squares white chocolate (good quality)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 envelope unflavoured gelatin
  • 3 tsp. grated lime peel
  • 1  1/2 cup whipped cream
  • candied lime slices – 3 limes (recipe follows)

Line bottom and sides of an 8 1/2 inch spring form pan with lady fingers cut in half length wise.

Beat the room temperature cream cheese until completely smooth.  Add the sugar and chocolate and blend well.

Sprinkle gelatin on top of lime juice in a saucepan.  Let stand for 5 minutes until it has softened.  Over low heat, stir until gelatin dissolves. Add this to the cheese mixture.

Fold this into the whipped cream and pour into the pan. Chill for about 4 hours. Garnish with the candied lime slices.

Candied Lime Slices

Slice the limes thinly and blanch in boiling water. Dunk in an ice bath and repeat the process. In  saucepan, dissolve one-half cup sugar with one-half-cup water and boil for five minutes until it becomes thick and syrupy.

Add the peels and cook for five minutes. Remove the peels and allow to cool down. You can now use them on your cake. Arrange in a pretty circle on top by overlapping each slice a little. Yummy!
