Homemade Lemon Cheesecake
Homemade is always better and this Lemon Cheesecake recipe is great proof of that! This recipe requires only eight ingredients and that includes making the crust!
The name says ‘cake’ but it resembles a pie, doesn’t it. This Homemade Lemon Cheesecake recipe is as easy as pie.
If you have been around this blog for long, you know that my sweet husband makes more desserts than I do sometimes. This Lemon Cheesecake is one of his desserts.
He made these Sweet & Salty Chocolate Caramel Nut Clusters last Christmas and we are still talking about how good they were!
Any dessert with a graham cracker crust is bound to be delicious!
Follow the recipe below to make the crust. Pat the crust gently into the bottom of a spring form pan with the sides of the pan removed as above. Place the crust pan onto a baking sheet before it goes into the oven.
After allowing the crust to cool, carefully set the baked crust pan into the fitting of the ring. Be sure the ring is properly locked into place before adding the filling.
