Key lime meringue cheesecake

Christmas Cupcakes
December 8, 2018

Delicious and fresh taste of this key lime meringue cheesecake makes it a perfect treat for the garden party season.

I 'm definitely a huge fan of sour cakes! While waiting for my beloved rhubarb to grow, I found a few limes in my fruit basket, and decided to make this amazing cheesecake.
It's perfectly creamy, and ideally balanced in sour and sweet palette. Not to mention, super easy to make, plus you can surprise your guests with "meringue art" :)
