Yesterday was a perfect day. It began with my sister coming to visit and we worked on crafts until about 1:00. Then my son, daughter-in-law and grandson came to visit. Caleb is getting so big. After Stephen took his family home to take naps my sister and brother-in-law and I left to go shopping. Since I have lost 67 pounds now I desperately needed heavy clothes. I have been freezing to death at work. None of my clothes from last winter fit me now.
I found all of my new clothes at Sears. I love that store. Their clothing is very good quality and they don’t charge a small fortune for it either.
When my family was here today I served the Ranchero Onion Burgers (also on this blog) and a new recipe that was absolutely fabulous. Caleb loved it as did all of the Diabetics present. I hope that you enjoy it too. Usually I like to give credit to whomever created this recipe but when I did a search online for the recipe I found this exact recipe on about 20 websites so I have no idea who created it first. I did make one modification on it and I did use pecans for the crust.
Key Lime Cheesecake
For Crust: Melt butter in a pie plate. Press in ground nuts mixed with 2 Tablespoons Splenda. Let chill in refrigerator.
Meanwhile, make filling: Mix water with lime sugar free gelatin. Set in refrigerator to partially set up. In a bowl, whip heavy cream. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, key lime juice, and 1 cup Splenda until smooth. Very lightly mix in partially set lime gelatin. Fold in whipping cream. Pour into pie shell. Chill 2 to 3 hours.
Top with additional whipped cream if desired.
