The Best Lime Cheesecake

Updated on October 9, 2012

I recently asked my mother-in-law for a simple dessert recipe for her son's (my husband) birthday. She knows quite well that I have a handful of recipes to my name which I enjoy making every now again and again..... Apart from these, you won't very often see me in the kitchen. As usual she came to my rescue with this delicious and I mean 'delicious' recipe.

It is so simple to make ( if I can make it anyone can) and best of all it does not require any baking.

If you are watching your waistline then I this probably isn't the recipe for you, unless of course you just fancy a very tiny slice .....


  • 3 ounces or 85g Butter
  • 9 ounces or 250g Ginger nut biscuits (cookies)
  • 1 tin or 397g Condensed Milk
  • 3/4pint or 15fl ounces Double cream/thickened cream
  • 5 Limes
  • 4 ounces or 100g Dark Chocolate


  1. Crush the ginger biscuits (cookies)
  2. Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the crushed biscuits. Press down firmly a loose bottom 9" tin. Finely grate the limes.
  3. Whisk together the remaining ingredients until thick and creamy, the lime juice will help to thicken the mixture. Spoon over biscuit base and chill for 1 hr.
  4. When set, grate dark chocolate (or any chocolate you like). I added strawberries, but I think any citrus fruit would go well with this dessert.

      samnashy, Your suggestion about visualizing this cheesecake in your comment is wonderful! Now that's the kind of creative visualization I love; I'm visualizing; I'll see how the universe responds.

      Lime cheesecake is a favorite for me. The simplicity of your recipe is very attractive.

      Appreciatively, Stessily
