      I had to edit my rating on this from 4 stars to 3 stars. Although for a low fat cheesecake, its not bad, i found out afterwards from the company I served this to that they really didn't like it and didn't want to hurt my feelings. I thought the cheesecake had a nice lemon flavour to it and sweetness. The texture of the cheesecake was not as light as I thought it would be though. We couldn't find the lemon cookies listed in the recipe, so we used lemon social teas, but the rest of the recipe we followed exactly. But based on the comments I received from my guests, I would probably not make this again.
