I have officially burnt out my family on pumpkin recipes. I was on a quest for the perfect fall recipe for Bunko and I made a bunch of flops that will not make this blog.

So…I went back to my tried and true Turtle cheesecake recipe. This is the first cheesecake recipe I ever made back in college.

I didn’t realize what a good recipe it was until I tried other cheesecake recipes. If you are going for the WOW factor, here is your recipe.

The lime juice may seem a little strange but trust me it works!!

People are always so amazed that I actually made it and it’s not store bought.
