  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

  2. Make the crust by combining the graham cracker crumbs with the butter and 1 tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl.

  3. Stir well enough to coat all of the crumbs with the butter.

  4. Press the crumbs onto the bottom and about one half of the way up the sides of an 8-inch springform pan. You don't want the crust to to form all the way up the back of each slice of cheesecake.

  5. Bake the crust for 5 minutes, then set it aside until you are ready to fill it.

  6. In a large mixing bowl, combine creamcheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.

  7. Add the lime juice and eggs and continue to beat until smooth and creamy.

  8. Pour the filling into the pan.

  9. Bake for 60-70 minutes (if the top of the cheesecake is turning light brown, it's done).

  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

  11. When the cheesecake has come to room temperature, put it into the refrigerator.

  12. Once the cheesecake has chilled, remove the pan sides and cut the cheese cake into 8 equal slices (or size of desire).

  13. Serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream on top.
