Categories: Cheesecakes / Desserts / Sauces

1  Cup  Shortbread Cookie Crumbs, (15 cookies)
2  Tbsp  Butter, melted
24  Ounces  Cream Cheese, softened
1  Cup  Sugar
3    Eggs
1  Tbsp  Grated Lime Peel, (about 2 limes)
1/4  Cup  Lime Juice
10  Oz Pkg  Frozen Raspberries In Syrup, thawed
1  Tbsp  Cornstarch
1/3  Cup  Red Currant Jelly

Combine cookie crumbs with butter and press into bottom of 9 inch springform pan; refrigerate. In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; gradually beat in sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time, blending until smooth. Add remaining filling ingredients, beating until smooth. Pour over prepared crust. Bake at 325 F for 55 to 65 minutes or until set. To minimize cracking, place a shallow pan half full of hot water on lower rack during baking. Turn oven off; let cheesecake stand in oven 30 minutes with door open at least 4 inches. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes. Remove sides of pan; cool to room temperature on wire rack. Refrigerate overnight or up to three days. For sauce, drain raspberries, reserving syrup. Add water to syrup to make 3/4 cup. In small saucepan, combine syrup mixture and cornstarch; mix well. Add jelly; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and clear. Stir in raspberries. Refrigerate until cold. Serve cheesecake slices with sauce.
