This makes a lovely cheesecake and it's so nice to have a touch of summer in the heart of winter. It's very simple to make and anyone should have should have good success with this recipe. I did think that the lavender was a bit strong but that might have been because mine is relatively fresh- from last summer rather than having been on a shelf for a few years. I would use 2 Tbsp lavender from this batch next time. This recipe makes a smaller than usual cheesecake and thats a good thing here, lol. I wouldn't hesitate to make this lovely recipe again with just using a bit less lavender for myself.
