Now that summer is coming, you’ve got the perfect excuse to make this delicious cheesecake. Made with lots of lime juice, the cheese layer has a delicate texture, is fresh and refreshing, and perfect for a warm summer day.


  • For the merengue:



Add the cream cheese into your mixer bowl. Set up your mixer at medium speed, and pour the sugar. Add the egg, and pour the lime juice, and vanilla extract.


Mix everything until you obtain a smooth mixture.


Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C.


Place the biscuits in the blender and crush them. Add them in a bowl, and pour the melted butter over them. Mix until the butter is absorbed into the biscuits. Refrigerate for the next 3 hours.


Grab a round cake tin and grease its bottom with butter. Add the crushed biscuits and evenly spread them into the pan. Press the biscuits with your hands until you evenly level them. Pour the wet mixture over the levelled biscuits and bake it for 15 minutes.


Don’t turn off the heat when it’s ready, but increase it to 400°/200°C.


In the meantime, add the egg whites in your mixer bowl, set it up over medium speed. Pour the sugar and mix until the mixture reaches stiff peaks.


Evenly spread it on top of the cake. Slide it into the oven again, and cook it for the next 10 minutes. Shred a touch of lime zest on top before serving.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper. I’m probably too lazy to cook myself as often as I’d wish, but I always come up with the nicest twists for recipes. I add or remove ingredients, and I feel like a “Master of Ideas.” I dubbed myself that, I admit it. Other than flavors, I’m quite into movies, TV series, sports competitions, hiking in nature, traveling, and learning about other things.
