This Is What A Key Lime Cheesecake Looks Like!
I am not a humble person, nor have I ever pretended to be. I am an honest man, and have made cheesecakes of almost any flavor you might enjoy. I have fought for years, to find the secret of a making a cheesecake that didn't shrink around the edges, or crack somewhere! My toppings have hidden many flaws, much like make-up, booze, and dim light help out a bar bitch...(Apologies to all you nightcrawlers out there who may read this!) I have played with adding sour cream, flour, beating eggs while chanting Tibetan mantras, you name it... Today I nailed it! The photo you see is a Key lime cheesecake as it came out of the oven- not neon green, but the color of real Key limes. I have placed in contests with cheesecake, and toyed with buying a small company that made cheesecakes- so when I stand proud on this one, well I think you know what I'm feeling! This will be drizzled with a Chambord liquor/raspberry sauce I make that contrasts color and highlights flavor... Saturday, the party we go to at our hunt club will get to know this stuff up close and personal! The quote "Casting pearls before swine" comes to mind... Just kiddin', I'm just geeked how it turned out!
