Keylime Cheesecake

I have this picture taken a year ago.  This was a birthday cake I baked for two of my colleagues whose birthday fall on the same day.  I cannot remember the texture, but the acerbic taste was unforgettable.  I am a person who does not have a high tart tolerance level, so one bite of this cheesecake had my eyes squinting =.=.  If you will like to try out this recipe,  increase the amount of  sugar to the tartness of the lime.

200g digestive biscuits
