Lime Mousse Cheesecake

March 7, 2013 by 32 Comments

I’ve been a little quiet this week, but I didn’t want you to miss out on this delicious, creamy dessert!  I made a Lime Mousse Cheesecake for our anniversary treat using my traditional mousse cheesecake recipe and adding a touch of lime to the mousse.  This is seriously the best cheesecake EVER!  If I make it too often, over the next thirteen years there will definitely be a lot more of both of us to love!

Looks like we had a color theme going — a fun anniversary treat from my sweet hubby — white tulips!  It’s such a blessing to know that through the highs and lows of life, I have my best friend by my side!  Okay, I know — enough mushiness!  Now go bake some Lime Mousse Cheesecake for your sweeties!
