    ellie_'s Note:

    Creamy cheesecake uses ricotta and mascarpone cheese instead of the traditional cream cheese so it is very creamy and rich. Adapted from Gardener (Spring, 2004).

      Deliciously creamy and lemony, and such a smooth, absolutely wonderful texture. I wasn’t familiar with the biscuits specified, so I opted for some shortbreads with orange flavouring, which made a great base for the cheesecake. ellie_’s instructions were easy to follow and this cheesecake was easy to make. I took it along to a dinner party I’d been invited to on Friday night, and it was the first of several desserts to disappear, amid rave comments! I’ve since emailed the recipe to three people who want to make it for the Christmas break! And it looks as if I’ll also be making another one! SOON! Thanks for sharing such a wonderfully delicious recipe, ellie_!

      Every one loved this and I am making another one next week! My oven is slightly touchy so it took longer than stated. Followed recipe as is. Thank you ellie for a keeper!
