Break cookies into bowl of food processor and process into fine crumbs.  Add butter and process briefly to combine.  Press mixture into bottom and sides of a 10-inch springform pan.

Beat cream cheese until light and fluffy.  Gradually add sugar and flour and mix until combined well.  Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Blend in lime juice, zest, and food coloring.  Pour into prepared pan and bake in a 325-degree oven for 55 minutes or until just set.

Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes.  Mix sour cream and sugar until well blended.  Spread over cheesecake and bake for 10 minutes more.  Cool completely and refrigerate until chilled thoroughly.
