    Key Lime Cheesecake

    1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    2 Tablespoons sugar
    2 Tablespoons margarine melted

    4 packages cream cheese
    1 cup sugar
    1 Tablespoon lime zest
    1/2 cup key lime juice
    1/4 teaspoon green food coloring
    3 eggs

    Spray a 9 inch spring form pan with cooking spray. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and margarine in a small bowl. Press crumb mixture into prepared pan.

    Mix cream cheese, and sugar until creamy. Add lime zest, juice and food coloring. Mix until well blended.

    Add eggs one at a time.

    Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until set. Allow cheesecake to cool.

    Place in refrigerator overnight.

    To make extra special before serving take a shamrock cookie cutter and gently place it on the cake then sprinkle green sugar sprinkles into the cookie cutter. Lift cookie cutter and repeat two or three times.

    Thanks; Virginia
