Lime Cheesecake with a Walnut Crust
292g ground walnuts
76g melted butter
tblspns sugar substitute
448g cream cheese, softened
whipping or heavy cream
Juice and rind of 4 limes
raspberries to decorate
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
Grease and line a spring form cake tin with parchment paper.
Mix the base ingredients together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Place the mixture into the spring form tin and press down evenly, with the back of spoon.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven.
Blend or beat the cream cheese, eggs, cream, sugar substitute, lime juice and rind together. I use a hand whisk but a hand blender or elbow power will do nicely.
Ensure that the mixture is smooth.
Pour the mixture over the walnut base.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until firm.
Allow to cool, then place in the fridge for at least 8 hours (or overnight).
Decorate as desired, eat and enjoy!
