OK... Here's what I did...

Key Lime Cheesecake Bars

  • 3 Cups Finely Ground Graham Crackers
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1-1/2 Cup COLD Butter
  • 8 Ounces (1 Brick) Cream Cheese
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 (13 Ounce) Can Condensed Milk
  • Juice and Zest of 5 Key Limes
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
Cooking Directions
  1. First we make the crust... Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a food Processor,pulse the graham crackers until mostly crushed evenly. Add the sugar and turn the machine on steady. Add the butter in 8 pieces and continue to process until the crackers look like grains of sand... Crumbly.
  3. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a prepared (Spray) 9X13 Casserole dish.
  4. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 12 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, Make the Filling... In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the Cream Cheese with the Eggs until smooth. Add the Condensed Milk and continue to cream. Finally, add the sugar.
  6. Pour the filling into the pan.
  7. Bake for 25 Minutes only. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cool, refrigerate for an hour or more.
  8. Serve Chilled and ENJOY!


So,  I am pleased to list this as one of my Growing list of  "52 Ways to Cook COOKIE, BARS and TRUFFLES"!!!

Old school like classic criss cross peanut butter to new takes on interesting recipes like a beautiful Red Velvet with the cream cheese mixed inside the cookie, accented with white chocolate chips!  Even a Pineapple Cream Cheese EASY Bar with only 5 ingredients! 
Stop on by, there's always a new cookie in the cookie jar!


This recipe has also been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
