Kiwi Cheesecake with Key Lime Sauce


Consider yourself fortunate if you have friends who invite you over for the occasional dinner. Consider yourself inordinately fortunate if said friends are amazingly good cooks.
We are inordinately fortunate.
I won't induce you to envy by describing our dinner of succulent smoked ribs, creamy potato salad, or beans simmered with bits of pork.
Envy is not an attractive quality and I want no part of leading you down that dark path.
But in the spirit of sharing that typifies bloggers and food lovers everywhere, I would like to share with you this dessert that our good friend and accomplished kitchen genie Stuart made for us the other night.

Cheesecake (you can buy it or make your own), topped with thinly sliced kiwi that's swimming in this key lime sauce.
Arrange kiwis artfully over creamy cheesecake, spoon on a bit of the sauce, and serve to applause.
Thank you, Stuart.

Tangy lime/kiwi topping with the sweet creamy cheesecake sound like a delicious combination.

Cheesecake is my all-time favorite dessert. I haven't met one I didn't like yet, and combining the flavor of key lime with cheesecake-wow. Yes, you are indeed fortunate.
