    mary winecoff's Note:

    I had a almost full bottle of Limoncello in my refrigerator and I wanted to use some of it up. I love cheesecake so while searching the web I found this one on Very good! Lemoncello is an italian lemon liqueur.

    3. 3
      Add the eggs one at a time without excessive beating to avoid removing the air, followed by mixing in the remaining batter ingredients.

      Scrumptious! I made this for a birthday dessert and it didn't disappoint. Lovely texture and creaminess. I followed the cheesecake part of the recipe because I didn't have wafers in stock. I used a traditional graham cracker crust recipe plus some toasted ground almonds. I also didn't have the 2 c. of sour cream needed for the topping in this recipe so I used a limoncello sauce from another recipe (babygirl65) and I really liked it. But next time I'll have the sour cream, I bet it makes it even more luscious. So basically don't let a few missing ingredients keep you from trying a truly wonderful dessert. Thanks for sharing!

      Great recipe! Here is what I did for a busy summer weekend: I bought two ready made graham cracker crusts and divided the filling and topping (and still had enough for 12 mini muffin sized cheesecakes.) I took the cheesecakes to two different functions and had the minis to keep at home. I will definitely make this again, maybe as full size as indicated for a holiday gathering. Thanks for sharing!
