Key Lime Cheesecake Bar Recipe

Key Lime Pie is one of my all-time favorite desserts. I love the cutting tang of the key limes and there’s just nothing more refreshing than lime flavor, especially in the Summer. I’m a bit obsessed with sun-shiny flavors like cilantro and lime during this season. There’s no excuse when the time is right, either. But, this Key Lime Cheesecake Bar Recipe brings it to a new level. Using the Gingersnap Cookie Recipe for the crust, these bars have a more complex depth to them than a typical Key Lime Pie. I mean, really? Who can’t deny that cheesecake can make many things better.

For the Crust:

10 Ginger Snap Cookies

- Preheat oven to 325 degrees
- Place in food processor until crumbs
- Spray non-stick spray in glass baking pan
- Pat crumbs down evenly
- Bake for 10-15 minutes
