Key lime icebox cheesecake is perfectly sweet, creamy, and tart. Try to eat just one slice!
We are in the midst of some ridiculous heat here in Arkansas, and it’s making me cranky.
There are people who function well in heat and I am not one of them. I am actually the exact opposite. My hair frizzes, my make-up melts off, and time seems to stand still. And so I sit in my air conditioned home, shades drawn and Dr. Phil reruns on repeat. I’m fine where I am, thanks.
Have you ever loaded and unloaded a difficult toddler from her car seat when it’s eleven zillion degrees outside? It’s exactly what I envision Hell to be.
Seriously, there is no better punishment in life than dooming a person to sweating their face off while trying to maneuver a difficult buckle (positioning JUST SO to meet all legal requirements) while a 30 pound toddler arches her back and becomes stiff as a board, screaming, “I DO MYSELF!! I DO MYSELF!!!”
Every time I have to run an errand these days, I carefully weigh all aspects of my outing. How many loads and unloads are involved? Did Lucy have a good nap? Are there any places with slushies or milkshakes in the vicinity in case an emergency bribe is called for?
I hear that bribes are frowned upon, which I find completely ridiculous. How else does someone motivate good behavior? A hug? A smile? No, sorry. Not gonna work. If a $2 chocolate shake buys me my sanity, I say it’s a bargain.
It is with this insanity-causing heat in mind that I bring you this cool, creamy, tart key lime icebox cheesecake. It’s the perfect dessert at the end of a hot day and it’s incredibly simple to whip up. You’re going to love it!
