Recipe by Chef John
"That you can make this lovely, sweet treat without turning on the oven is probably enough of a reason to give this serious consideration. Besides the taste and light mousse-like texture, I think your guests will enjoy the iconic stars and stripes design provided by the fresh blueberries and strawberries. USA! USA! USA!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Delicious! Nice flavor, chef John's recipes never let me down :) light and delicious. I used real vanilla extract not sure if imitation would of worked. Also used regular Philadelphia cream cheese as I couldn't find any mascarpone... Came
I liked the texture, but found the cheesecake bland, and didn't care for the lemon rind, nor lemon flavoring within the cake.
I just used two packages of cream cheese and refrigerated it over night, then placed fruit right before eating. I used imitation vanilla and it was fine, I think the fresh lemon juice made a big difference in the overall flavor. YUMmmm. Festive and perfect for a hot 4th of July day!
We enjoyed this recipe. We'd have liked it a little sweeter. Next time I will add a little powdered sugar to the marscapone mixture or drizzle with a flavored syrup (caramel or strawberry, maybe?). But it was very easy and tastes good!
It was finger licking good and no changes to the recipe were necessary.
This recipe was very easy. I personally felt like the lemon was too much, but I am not a big fan of lemon. My guests, however, loved this. I had no leftovers and they were left wanting more. I will definitely make this again.
It was so good! Made it for 4th of July, for a small party and most of it was gone by the time it was done.
