Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees (F).
  2. For the Crust:
  3. In the body of a blender combine graham crackers, sugar, and salt; blend until the crackers have been completely pulsed to crumbs. Add melted butter; stir well to combine. Press down into a lightly greased 9-inch springform pan; set aside.
  4. For the Creamy Greek Yogurt Key Lime Cheesecake Filling:
  5. In the body of a high power blender, food processor, stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or in a large bowl using a hand held mixer, beat the softened cream cheese and Greek yogurt until smooth.
  6. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth, scraping down the sides and bottom of bowl as needed. Add in the eggs and yolks; beat until smooth. Stir in the flour, mixing just until combined.
  7. Quickly stir in the lime juice, mixing just until it's incorporated in the batter.
  8. Pour filling into prepared crust, and spread evenly.
  9. Wrap the bottom of the pan in tin foil (I recommend doing a few diligent layers here; none wants a wet crust).
  10. Place the cheesecake pan into a large, deep pan. Fill the pan up with hot water half way. This is your water bath and will help ensure your cheesecake comes out crack free.
  11. Place pan in the oven and cook cheesecake for 1 hour and 25 minutes. Turn oven off and let the cheesecake sit, undisturbed, for 55 minutes inside the oven with the door shut. The cheesecake should be still slightly wiggly.
  12. Remove cake from oven, run a knife very gently around the edge of the cake, and let it sit in the pan for 15 more minutes before covering loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerating for at least 6 hours. When ready to serve, top with a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!

Notes

You may use any large, deep oven-safe baking pan you have to make your water bath.
