Rated 1 out of 5 by from Different recipe? I'm sure this recipe used to include whipped cream. I made it to current recipe and it was disappointing. It did not set as well as previously and the cheese layer was quite thin. I might experiment by including some whipped cream if I make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy and soooo delicious! My 13 yo daughter made this cheesecake, and she was rightly very proud of it. It was so delicious! She added the zest of a lemon as well as the lemon juice, and then attempted a swirl through the cheesecake with the lemon curd. When she makes it again she will make it the same again except with a touch more butter in the base as it was maybe a tiny bit too crumbly,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No bake lemon cheesecake I made this lemon cheesecake and I thought it was not going to set. It set better after a few days in the fridge and tasted lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely & so simple I've made this cheesecake quite a few times & l always top it with a lemon meringue pie filling. Gives it an extra tang. My daughter in law has been begging me to make one, so it will make a grand entrance on Boxing day!
