Cranberry-Lime Cheesecake


One bite of this light and airy cranberry-lime cheesecake recipe and it will become your go-to recipe for dessert. Part-skim ricotta cheese adds a delicate texture and stands in for some of the higher-fat cream cheese. Be sure to use a large, wide piece of heavy-duty foil to wrap the pan—the foil helps prevent water from seeping into the cake as it bakes.

Preparation
Active - 40 m

  • To prepare cheesecake: Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Tightly wrap the outside of the pan, bottom and sides, with a large piece of heavy-duty foil. Put a kettle of water on to boil for the water bath. 
  • Combine graham cracker crumbs and oil in a small bowl. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. 
  • Process ricotta in a food processor (or blender) until smooth. Add cream cheese and puree until smooth. Add 2 teaspoons of the lime zest, 5 tablespoons of the lime juice, eggs, 1 cup sugar, vanilla and ½ teaspoon salt; process until smooth. Scrape into the prepared crust. Place the cheesecake in a roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan to come 1 inch up the side of the springform pan to create a hot water bath for the cake. Carefully transfer the roasting pan to the center of the oven. Bake the cheesecake until set around the edges but the center still jiggles slightly, 1¼ to 1½ hours. 
  • Transfer the roasting pan to a wire rack. Let the cheesecake cool in the water bath until the water is room temperature, about 2 hours. 
  • Remove the pan from the water bath. Remove the foil. Refrigerate, uncovered, until very cold, at least 3 hours. 
  • To prepare topping: Combine cranberries, water, ⅓ cup sugar and pinch of salt in a medium nonreactive saucepan (see Tips). Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine 2 tablespoons lime juice and cornstarch; stir into the pan. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Let cool completely before spooning onto the cheesecake.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 6, tightly wrap the cold cheesecake and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Hold topping at room temperature for up to 4 hours or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.Equipment: 9-inch springform pan, heavy-duty foil
  • Tips: Make your own graham cracker crumbs, pulse graham crackers in a food processor or place in a sealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. You'll need 6 to 7 graham crackers to make 1 cup of crumbs.Be sure to use a nonreactive pan baking dish or bowl—stainless-steel, enamel-coated or glass—when cooking with acidic food (citrus, cranberries, tomatoes) to prevent the food from reacting with the pan. Reactive pans, such as aluminum and cast-iron, can impart off colors and/or flavors.

What The Huawei-Google Spat Means For You

Huawei's addition to the US trade blocklist has been temporarily lifted, allowing Google, Intel, Qualcomm and others to do business with the phone maker once again. We explain how the news affects existing customers.
Huawei's future outside China is looking a little shaky right now following Google's decision to comply with President Trump's ruling over the company, which saw it added to the US trade blocklist.
