In this recipe, the ounces and the inches are mentioned so you’ll be able to know exactly what size to use.
Homemade Cheesecake with Cream Cheese
This recipe is how to make cheesecake with cream cheese. In following the ingredients, you’ll find it’s an excellent recipe for cheesecake with Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
You’ll absolutely need to soften the cream cheese prior to blending it with a mixer. This ensures that everything is blended and distributed evenly together. If you use a microwave to soften it up, don’t forget to remove it from its metallic wrapping first! It works easier if you put it in a small bowl with a paper towel as a covering. If you don’t use a microwave, you can set the wrapped cheese cake block in a pan of hot water for about 10 minutes. Just ensure it’s off the burner and not left in it too long.
After baking, how long does cheesecake need to set? After it’s baked, you can sit out for about 15-30 minutes before placing in the fridge for about 2-3 hours. It can be sliced in about 1-1/2 to 2 hours but it won’t yet be cool enough for some.

How to Make Lime Cheesecake
How Much Lime Juice for Lime Cheesecake
For how to make lime cheesecake, just double the amount of lime juice that’s called for. It’s very easy, as the default recipe has just a hint of lime. If you’re wanting a stronger lime flavor, it’s best not to exceed 3 times the amount of lime. Two times the original recipe quantity of lime juice is commonly plenty.
Topping for Lime Cheesecake
Skip any fruit topping. Instead, you can optionally decorate the top with an outer ring of 8 evenly spaced, thinly sliced lime circles. This coincidentally defines the slice sizes to make so that each serving will have a centered lime circle as a more personalized décor. Lime Cheesecake does do real well with a small squirt of whipped cream topping per serving. It helps soften the tartness by adding a creamy melding of flavor.
And, if you’re serving larger slices, just use 6 lime circles. It’s just a light-hearted example of applying the food management principle of where “less is more”.
