Such an easy recipe and we love lemon curd in or on anything - that is the British in me. Do have a few changes that I feel are an improvement and that is to not use lemon extract - the lemon rind is enough and does not taste artificial. Also, if you have the time, please make your own lemon curd.........much better than the jarred stuff. Thanks for a great dessert otherwise.

We really enjoyed this recipe -- my daughter and I made this together. We used a springform pan, and it worked just fine, although we had to cook longer than 35min. We also made our own homemade lemon curd. It was time-consuming, but really worth a Sunday afternoon together. Thanks so much!

Very good, but hubs wasn't so sure about the lemon flavor of this. I liked it, but even I, a lemon obsessed person, thought it was too much. Maybe just the cheesecake without the lemon curd on top, or a plain cheesecake with lemon curd on top would be best for us. I didn't have whipped topping and so yesterday we tried it w/o the whipped topping; after we bought some, we tried it today with the whipped topping. It's definitely better with the whipped topping. Thanks for the recipe!
