3-Step Key Lime Cheesecake

Here's the key lime pie I promised a few days ago. Although it's more a cheesecake than a pie.

Prep: 10 mins l Bake: 40 mins l Chill: 3 hours l Servings: 8

2 8 oz pkgs softened cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp grated lime peel (i don't usually use this)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 9-inch graham cracker crust (bought or made)
cool whip thawed
lime slices

1. Mix cream cheese, sugar, juice, peel and vanilla on medium speed until well blended.
Add eggs and mix until they are blended.
2. Pour into crust.
3. Bake at 350* for 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Garnish with whipped topping and lime slices.
