Key Lime Cheesecake Squares

1/2 cup crushed graham wafers-or wafer crumbs
1/2 cup crushed vanilla wafers-or wafer crumbs
1/4 cup ground almonds or crushed pecans
1/4 cup margarine
vegetable spray
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
2 tsp. grated lime zest

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a mixing bowl, combine wafer crumbs and almonds, mix well. Cut
in margarine, using a pastry blender or a fork until mixture is
crumbly. In a 8" x 8" oven proof baking dish, spray bottom and
sides with a vegetable spray. Sprinkle with flour and shake to
lightly coat dish. Shake off any excess flour and discard. Press
wafer mixture firmly in bottom of dish. Place dish in the refrigerator
or freezer portion for about 1/2 hour to chill.

In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat softened cream
cheese, sugar, egg and lime juice until smooth and creamy. Add lime
zest and mix again. Pour mixture over chilled crust and spread
evenly. Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until
cheese cake is set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack Chill
in refrigerator before cutting into squares. If you wish to decorate
the cheese cake squares, cut and place a 1/2 of a red or green
Maraschino cherry in each square, or you may wish to use a small
piece of lime or a fresh strawberry.
