Key Lime ‘Cheesecake’

  • Prep Time 10m
  • Cook Time 1h
  • Servings 8 - 10

Ingredients

  • 2 pkgs. plain vegan cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice (you can use regular lemon juice, too)
  • 2 tsp. lime zest (grated rind of lime)
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 9-inch  graham cracker crust

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the vegan “cream cheese,” sugar, vanilla, lime juice, zest, and cornstarch in a blender and mix until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into the graham cracker crust. Place the filled pie shell on a cookie sheet (the pie tends to boil over during cooking).
  3. Bake for 60 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.
  4. Remove and let it set until cool to the touch, then chill in the fridge for a few hours.
