  • 2 1/2 cups graham crumbs (390g)
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter

Filling:

  • 3 packages cream cheese room temperature (24oz/750g)
  • 1 1/2-2 cups powdered sugar (200-263g)
  • 1/4 cup key lime or lime juice (2 limes)
  • 1 tablespoon key lime or lime zest (1 lime)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream cold, 30-35% fat ONLY

Instructions

  1. Combine graham crumbs and butter and press firmly into the bottom of an 8″ or 9″ springform pan and about 1″ up the sides.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.
  3. Add 1 1/2 cups sugar, lime juice, lime zest, and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  4. Add cream and beat on low until incorporated, then beat on high until thickened and fluffy (don’t stop until you have stiff peaks — this will take several minutes on high speed!). Taste and adjust sugar as desired.
