  • Preheat oven to 350°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 325°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springrform pan). Combine graham crumbs and butter; press firmly onto bottom of pan.
  • Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each addition just until blended. Stir in poppy seed, lemon and lime peel and 2 Tbsp. each of the lemon and lime juice. Discard any remaining juice.
  • Bake 45 to 50 min. or until centre is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Top with whipped topping just before serving. Garnish with additional lemon and lime slices, if desired. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

Size Wise

Save 55 calories, 6 g fat and 3 g saturated fat by using Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese product, Cool Whip Light Topping and low-trans margarine.

How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped packages of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 45 seconds or until slightly softened.

Cooking Know-How

Make sure the cream cheese and sugar are completely blended, free of lumps and smooth, before blending in remaining ingredients.

Cooking Know-How

Avoid overbaking! Check for doneness at the minimum baking time. When done, the edge should be slightly puffed. The centre area should be about the size of a silver dollar and should still appear soft and moist.
