Lemon Cheesecake

 

Hello, I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!  Summer is finally here, unofficially anyway.  Today it’s time for our monthly ingredient challenge!  This is the one post each month where I take a break from design and share a recipe.  If you missed last month, you can catch up here.  This month’s chosen ingredient is lemons, perfect for the start of summer!

Because I’ll pick baking over cooking most days, I decided to make a dessert.  This lemon cheesecake is a little lighter than the cheesecakes I make around the holidays.  The lemon gives it just the right amount of citrus flavor, not too overwhelming.

    1. Thanks Pam! I had never had lemon cheesecake before I made this recipe. I was a little skeptical, but it really is delicious!

  2. So pretty and it looks absolutely delicious! Oh, I like the idea of a gingersnap crunch, that must taste really good with the lemon. Thanks for sharing your cheesecake recipe on TALENTED TUESDAY link party!

  3. This looks and sounds delicious! Pinning because I absolutely want to try this. Cheesecake is one of my
    favorite types of cake, besides my beloved pound cake.
