Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Very Special Lemon Cheesecake Tried this recipe after seeing the instructions on facebook; what a result, so good that it was eaten up all too quickly! I do line the baking tin to make sure that it turns out easily and none gets left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy sweet Read the reviews before I made it, took note of all the comments on people’s failures. Used full fat cream cheese, fresh lemons and whisked it to Whithin an inch of its life with an electric mixer to a light foamy stage and had turned white. Set to a light wobble. No problems, tasted grand, easy desert for the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lemon delight cheesecake I made this, but added the lemon curd to the cream cheese & condensed milk to make it extra lemony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY AND DELICIOUS I purchased this on a whim and I made a Lemon Cheesecake for my son's 12th 'lockdown' birthday. I've never made a cheesecake before so it was the first time making it. I followed the recipe exactly how it says and it was perfect. Everyone loved it and I'll definately be making it again as it's so quick and simple to make. Thank you Carnation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I used biscoff for the base and added 20gm more butter, also 75ml of lemon juice instead of 60ml. This is definitely a keeper, the base certainly isn't crumbly as some people have said and it all set perfectly.
