Key Lime Cheesecake

I absolutely love Key Lime Pie and cheesecake, so what is better than putting the two together. My best friend is also a lover of both, but she doesn't make either. So we were scheduled to have a bbq and I was told to bring dessert, and so since I had the limes, I put this together, and it was a hit by all!!
