This was a very easy recipe to make. However, I did change a few things. First, I skipped making the crust and just used a ready-made graham cracker crust. Second, I scaled down some of the ingredients a little bit. I only used 2 packages of cream cheese, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 eggs, and about 3/4 cups of sour cream. The rest of the ingredients I left as is. In addition, I also added fresh lime and orange juice along with the lemon for more citrus flavor. Turned out great! Thanks!
This cheesecake has a poor flavour
I tried this recipe for the first time for a dinner party. Dessert is my flare and I am always asked to it. This is one of the best cheesecakes I've made. I dressed it up with a ring of sliced kiwi, then a ring of mandarin oranges and finished it with crushed pineapple in the middle, I dried the fruit well before using. I topped it with the marmalade glaze from the recipe. It turned out just beautiful. I always cook my cheesecakes in a water bath. I will definately make this one again.
SO YUMMY!!! The chocolate cookie crust with the citrus flavor is wonderful! I just used orange zest and it turned out great.
I made a chocolate graham cracker crust instead of the one in the recipe, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and the result was wonderful. My picky husband said it was really, really good (a huge compliment from him) and that it was probably the best cheesecake I'd ever made! And it was easy to make, too. Update: Took this to a fund raiser bake sale and it brought in the most $$ and had a bid placed by almost everyone there!
I made the recipe as directed, but I made the glaze with lemon curd (store bought) instead of orange marmalade. I tossed a pint and a half of fresh blueberries in the lemon curd glaze and then dumped it on top of the cake. Delicious and beautiful! I had two New Yorkers say that this cheesecake is the best they've ever had, which is a great compliment!
I can understand why this recipe got 5 stars! This was my first cheesecake and I made 2 mistakes. 1. I need to practice more on making the crust, and 2. I could not wait the overnight refrigeration! Nontheless, this cake was wonderful. The glaze turned out perfect! This cheesecake recipe is definately a keeper! I will be more patient the next time I make it so that it will set up better. An absolute elegant dessert!
WOW is all i can say. my family LOVED this cheesecake. my husband hates cheesecake and he thought it was delicious. it was so easy and i don't think it would have tasted better if a gourmet shop had made it. i did add extra zest and juices.
