1 box of yellow cake mix

4 ounces butter, melted

1 egg

1 tablespoon lime zest


10 oz. cherries, seeded pureed

1 tablespoon lime zest

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

1 pound powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract



Place the dry cake mix, butter, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon lime zest  in a bowl and mix until well blended. Press mixture into parchment-lined 9×13-inch pan; set aside.

Place the cream cheese, pureed cherries, lime zest, 2 eggs, vanilla and mix until well blended. Pour cream cheese mixture on top of crust. Bake for at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden brown, and the center slightly jiggles when pan is tapped.

Cool completely in pan. Turn out onto a cutting board and cut into 1-inch-squares. For nice clean edges place pan in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm, then cut while cold.
