You'll love Maria's lemon and lime cheesecake recipe. Her Scottish cheesecake is refreshingly tart and deliciously rich. It's so good tasting! And as a bonus, I've added a vintage dessert recipe that also features the tangy taste of lemon. It too is easy to make, and it's the perfect dessert to lift you up after a so-so day.

I don't recall ever tasting cheesecake when I was a boy growing up in the 1950s. It must have been popular then in the cities, but Mom never made it nor can I recall any of our farm relatives making it. Strange, since our family was so blessed with homemade desserts. Anyway, I got to taste it for the first time at a class graduation party and have loved it ever since.


Lemon and Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Submitted by Maria, Scotland

Ingredients:

2 Regular tubs of soft cheese
4 Lemons
4 Limes
1/2 tub of double cream
1 packet of digestive biscuits
Lemon juice
Melted butter
(Sugar to taste)

Method:

Crush your biscuits and mix in melted butter. Get a cake tin and make a base with the biscuits and butter. Leave in fridge to set for 20-30 minutes. While that's in fridge, start on making your topping.

Mix all your soft cheese in a bowl with lemon and lime zest. Keep the lemons and limes and squirt the juice into the mixture. Then add 1/2 a tub of double cream. Mix really well, NO LUMPS!

IF TOO BITTER OR TANGY TO YOUR TASTE, ADD SUGAR TO SWEETEN.

BUT NOT TOO MUCH. IT NEEDS TO HAVE A SHARP TASTE REMEMBER!

Spread your lemon and lime cheesecake mixture onto your crumb base and for decoration put lemon and lime zest on top, or a thin slice of lime or lemon with a twist. Set in fridge for 2-4 hours to get firm before serving.

Enjoy!
