Yucatecan Lime Cheese Cake

Got this recipe from our friend Diane’s cleaning lady. Make sure you do it the day before so it gels…

Yucatecan Lime Cheese Cake


1 sleeve of ‘Maria’ cookies (these are much like an Arrowroot cookie)

1 14 oz. can of evaporated milk

1 14 oz. can Eagle Brand/sweetened condensed milk

1-2 teaspoons lime zest

1 8 oz. package soft cream cheese

½ cup lime juice

Mix all ingredients in food processor EXCEPT the cookies!!!!!!!!!

In a very lightly greased square Pyrex dish, place a layer of cookies, followed by a layer of topping. Repeat the process with another layer of cookies and then more topping. If you have sufficient topping and cookies do another layer.

NOTE:  FOUR layers are pretty rich !!!!!

Cover with Saran Wrap and Refrigerate overnight.

Decorate with thin lime slices and a little zest….
