    blucoat's Note:

    This cheesecake has a delicious nutty and crisp crust with a light but creamy citrusy filling. Recipe is from Gourmet (April 2008). Cheesecake can be made 2 days ahead and chilled, loosely covered. You can garnish with berries or julienned lemon zest. The cake needs to cool 2-3 hours before serving. If you don't have matzo cake meal, grind regular matzo meal (or even matzos) to a finer consistency in a food processor or blender.

    Almond Crust

    • 3/4 cup sliced blanched almond, toasted and cooled
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 2/3 cup matzo cake meal
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Lemon Cheesecake Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make crust: Preheat oven to 350F with rack in middle. Pulse almonds, sugar, matzo cake meal, and salt in a food processor until finely ground. Transfer to a bowl and stir in butter until combined well. Press onto bottom and 1 inch up side of springform pan. Bake until crust is firm and a shade darker, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool crust completely in pan on a rack.
    2. 2
      Make filling and bake cheesecake: Reduce oven temperature to 300°F Beat together cream cheese and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low and add eggs 1 at a time, mixing until incorporated. Mix in zest and vanilla.
    3. 3
      Put springform pan in a shallow baking pan and pour filling into cooled crust. Bake until filling is set 1 1/2 inches from edge but center is wobbly, 45 to 50 minutes (filling will continue to set as it cools). Transfer cake in pan to a rack and immediately run a knife around edge, then remove side of pan. Cool completely, 2 to 3 hours.
