Key Lime Cheesecake Squares

Here's a wonderful and easy recipe for a refreshing dessert!

Key Lime Cheesecake Squares

Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix

1 tbsp fresh key lime peel, finely grated

Cheesecake Filling

2 - 8oz packages cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp pure vanilla

2 eggs, room temp

1 cup Stonewall Kitchen Key Lime Curd
(we have it!)

Grease a 9 x 13 pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare sugar cookie mix as directed on package, adding lime peel.
Sometimes I will also add in finely ground walnuts or pecans (about 1/2 cup).

Press crust mixture evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake about 15 to 20 minutes, until light golden in color.
Let cool 30 minutes.

While baking, prepare filling.
Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended.
Add eggs and mix just until eggs are incorporated.
Pour cheesecake filling evenly over the cooled crust.
Spoon Key Lime Curd randomly on top of filling and then swirl with a blunt knife to combine.
Bake for approx. 35 to 40 minutes or until center is set.
Allow to cool in pan. Cut and serve. You may sprinkle with confectionary sugar if desired.
