NO BAKE KIWI-LIME GLAZED CHEESECAKE

I created this delicious tasting dessert from another recipe I had been making for at least 20 years. Instead of using a extra serving size Graham Pie Crust, I decided to make my own & use a springform pan instead. I also decided to add lime jello to the cream cheese mixture to help it to set up & become more firm as it set in the fridge.

Then I decided I would use some of the kiwi I had to enhance the tartness of the cheesecake, then top it with some maraschino halves for color. The results was outstanding & my husband really loved the flavor, & appreciated the tartness of the kiwi fruit
