Delicious! I used a Vanilla Wafer crust. I used real key limes-twenty of them! I heeded the recommendation of member Smang in the use of flour instead of cornstarch, and the addition of one egg. I, like her, prefer a more textured than creamy cheesecake. I used member Katiemac's tip for high altitude and cooked it for 75 mins. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe as written. Living in the foothills of Golden, Colorado at 7300 feet alt., and dry climate, it can be a challenge baking almost anything in the cake and bread catagories. The water bath under the cake, instead of setting the cake directly in it, worked wonderfully. I had no cracks, even after the 30 min. rest with the oven door ajar. The flavor was perfect. I like my citrus desserts tangy. I bake a lot of cheesecakes and am fairly picky about the overall outcome of them. For me, this is a BIG winner!
