1 1/2 cups pretzel crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup Triple Sec or other orange flavored liqueur
Garnishes: lime slices, fresh strawberries
Crust: Combine pretzel crumbs and butter; firmly press on
bottom and 1 1/2 inches up sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake
at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Set crust aside.
Cheesecake: Place strawberries in a container of an electric
blender; process until smooth, stopping once to scrape down sides.
Reserve 1/2 cup puree. Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an
electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating well.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in
lime juice, tequila, and liqueur. Pour into prepared pan; pour
reserved strawberry puree on top in a circle, and gently swirl
batter with a knife. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes
(center will be soft). Remove from oven, and run knife around edge
of pan to release sides. Return to oven; turn off oven and leave
cheesecake in oven 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool
completely on a wire rack. Remove from pan; cover with plastic
wrap, and chill 8 hours. Do not cover with aluminum foil. Garnish
