Top Review by Sydney Mike

HERE'S A WINNER OF A CHEESECAKE, especially if you enjoy the citrus flavors included here! Will admit that I used a good sized lemon AND lime (wanted all the zest I could get), & it was GREAT TASTING! Couldn't ask for a nicer dessert (unless, of course, it was chocolate)!
