Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

This lemon cheesecake recipe is a creamy New York Style cheesecake with a vivid lemon flavor and a yummy gingersnap crumb crust. This elegant dessert is like spring in a springform pan!

It’s been too long since I’ve made, or even had a bite of cheesecake and this one brought it all flooding back to me…why I love it, and why a great piece of cheesecake is one of life’s great pleasures. This one has the perfect texture, a zingy lemon flavor, and is all decked out for a party - what more could you want from dessert?

Most lemon cheesecake recipes are sorely lacking in actual lemon flavor. But I’ve got a secret weapon ~ lemon sugar. That’s sugar that has been processed with lemon zest so the two fuse into one fragrant citrus flavor bomb. You can read all about why I love it so much in my how to make lemon sugar post. It makes the lemon-i-est of lemony cheesecakes.
