Lemon Cheesecake

Lemon Cheesecake

Cheesecakes will always be one of my family favorite desserts. You can make cheesecake in so many ways, adding various flavors and have each time a different cheesecake dessert.

 

This Lemon Cheesecake is one of the best cheesecakes ever, it is creamy, light, has a perfect crust and delicious lemon flavor.

 

For the crust I used breadcrumbs in combination with digestive biscuits and it was totally irresistible with it's great crunchy texture.

 

You can use pastry cutter to create unique, elegant servings that everybody will appreciate.
