Great cheesecake. I don't make the topping, use cherry pie filling instead. I have to bake mine for about an hour and 15 minutes. The whole family loves it!

The taste is amazing. Lemony, light, yet sweet and refreshing. A bit like eating a lemon mousse topped on a cream cheese custard. Mine didn't set up properly and it was a little soggy in the fridge, so I froze it and it was still delicious. Otherwise, a really simple and easy recipe!
