Cinco De Mayo Cheesecakes

 I made 10 cheesecakes for our Mother/Daughter Banquet at Church today.  I made 2 of each of the following.  I invented the flavors special for the theme!
 Mexican Hot Chocolate Cheesecake.  I made a chocolate shortbread crust with a chocolate and cinnamon cheesecake filling.  Topped off with marshmellow fluff and mini marshmellows and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

 Strawberry Lime Cheesecake.  I made a vanilla shortbread crust with a filling that I used strawberry freezer jam given to me by Lauren, I also did zest and juice of one lime.  The cheesecake is topped with freezer jam, a dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry.

 Key Lime Cheesecake.  This has a graham cracker crust with cheesecake including all the traditional ingredients in a key lime pie, topped off with homemade key lime curd, a dollop of whipped cream and a sugard slice of lime.

 Atomic Fire Cheesecake.  I can't take credit for this one.  My friend Jodie had a dream years ago and dreamed this recipe and she shared it with me.  A graham cracker crust with a cinnamon laced cheesecake, topped with cayenne pepper chocolate ganache.  I decorated it with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

 Tres Leche Cheesecake.  This has a vanilla shortbread crust with a thin layer of caramel on top of the crust and then milky, creamy cheesecake topped with whipped cream and peach pie filling.
