Key Lime Cheesecake Pie

1/2 of 15-ounce package all ready pie crusts
1 teaspoon flour

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup lime juice
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel
whipping cream, whipped, sweetened
lime slices

Prepare pie crust with flour according to package directions for
unfilled one-crust pie using 9-inch pie pan (See Note). Generously
prick crust with fork. Bake in preheated 450-degree oven 9 to 11
minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.

To make filling, in small saucepan, soften gelatin in lime juice
5 minutes. Blend in sugar and eggs. Over medium heat, bring mixture
to a boil. Reduce heat. Boil gently 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
In small bowl, combine cream cheese and butter; beat well. Pour in
hot lime juice mixture; beat until smooth and well blended.

Refrigerate until cool, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In medum bowl, beat 1 cup whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
Fold in cooled lime juice mixture and lime peel. Spoon into cooled
pie crust. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Garnish with
whipped cream and lime slices. Store in refrigerator.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

To form starburst design, trim dough even with edge of pan. Cut
dough at about 1/2-inch intervals all around edges, making each
cut 1/2 inch long. Fold each square in half diagonally to form a
triangle, pressing lightly into dough to seal.
