I finally broke down and purchased an air fryer.  So I guess you would think I would do hot wings or a quiche.  Maybe a loaf of savory bread.  Something gluten or fat free.   NOT!!!!  That would be the normal thing to do.  I saw a recipe for cheesecake in the book that came with the fryer and decided I would do that but make it my own.  This was unbelievable easy.  A lot less time consuming and so good.  I can imagine using this through the hot summer months.  The kitchen will be cooler and the AC will not be popping on constantly.  I just have to make sure the scale does not rise.

 This is an easy recipe and you can substitute according to your likes.  The amount of lime juice does not make a significant different in the taste but it adds just a subtle hint.  You can use lemon juice or omit it and stick with the required vanilla.  As for the crust.  I purchased the streusel from a supermarket bakery.  It was more than I needed at the time but it came in handy for this recipe.  Graham crackers or any type of crust can be used for making a cheesecake.   You can even use a gluten-free crust if you like.  This is your personal preference and your creation so go for it and make it “Your Cheesecake”.   



2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese

½ cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tablespoon lime juice

½ teaspoon vanilla


2 ½ cups lemon cheese streusel



Bring all of the ingredients to room temperature. Using parchment paper cut out a circle and line the air fryer cake pan.   There is no need to use oil and/or flour because the pan is non-stick and the streusel is rich with butter and cream cheese.  In a food processor place the streusel and crumble to crust consistency.  Place the crumbs on top the parchment paper in the air fryer and cook for 3 minutes at 350 degrees on the roast cycle.  Remove from the air fryer and sit aside while you prepare the wet ingredients.


Using a hand mixer in a large bowl mix the cream cheese and sugar until creamy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add in the lime juice and the vanilla and blend until completely mixed.  Pour mixture over the crust and place in the air fryer using the bake cycle at 310 degrees for 12 minutes. 



Allow the cake to cool before chilling in the fridge for 3 or more hours. Enjoy
