My Favourite Lemon Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Nadia Melkowits

I made an attempt to make lemon bars but I had more ingredients than needed and that's how the cheese cake came up. Ever since this is the only cheese cake we make. It's is light and not too sweet with a hint of fresh lemon. The crust is so flaky just like a short bread cookie. This is so easy to make, you will see it yourself.
