Ice Box Cheesecake
Low Fat Recipe
A graham cracker crust spiced with ginger, a creamy orange flavored filling and a lime glaze topping it all off, this makes a fantastic frozen dessert or treat.
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1 pound fat free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 envelope gelatin
1/4 cup orange liqueur OR 1/4 cup water
8 ounces reduced-calorie or non fat whipped topping
Combine all ingredients for crust.
Coat a springform pan with non-stick spray. Turn the mixture into the prepared pan.
With fingers, distribute crust evenly over the bottom of the pan, pressing firmly. It must be a very firm, compact layer and should be on the bottom only, not on the sides. Bake in 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes or until it begins to brown slightly.
With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and airy. Add lime juice. Combine gelatin with water or liqueur. Melt this mixture over very low heat, just until gelatin dissolves, being careful not to overheat, or it will not set.
Add gelatin mixture, stirring constantly, to cream cheese mixture. Immediately fold in whipped topping. Refrigerate at least two hours or freeze.
Combine all ingredients for glaze and bring to a boil; cook for two minutes. Brush cheesecake with glaze and serve.
