  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely slivered lemon rind
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely slivered lime rind
  • 11/2 cups (375 mL) chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) butter, melted
  • 3 pkg (each 4 oz/125 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) whipping cream
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) finely grated lime rind
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) lime juice, (2 limes)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar


  1. Line 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan with parchment paper, leaving 1-inch (2.5 cm) overhang on 2 opposite sides. Set aside.
  2. Place lemon and lime slivers in bowl of ice water; refrigerate.
  3. In bowl, combine cookie crumbs with butter; press evenly into prepared pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  4. In large bowl, beat cream cheese at medium-high speed until smooth. Add the sweetened condensed milk, 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the cream, grated lime rind and juice and sugar; beat until smooth. Scrape over chilled base; smooth with spatula. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 days.)
  5. Using paper overhang as handles, transfer cheesecake from pan to cutting board. Using hot knife and wiping blade clean after each cut, cut into squares.
  6. Whip remaining cream; spoon or pipe about 1 tsp (5 mL) onto each square. Drain lemon and lime slivers and pat dry; arrange on whipped cream.
