I make this cheesecake with a lemon shortbread crust, which is the first part of the ‘triple’ lemon cheesecake! Next, comes the fluffy lemon cheesecake, flavored with tons of fresh lemon zest. Lemon zest is actually one of my favorite ingredients to add to both sweet and savory dishes. The aroma of the zest is out of this world, transforming any dish! And for the final third part, I load this cheesecake up with home-made lemon curd. If you’ve never had home-made lemon curd, you absolutely have to try it! It’s super creamy, lemony and simply a must for any lemon dessert. This recipe yields some extra lemon curd that you can serve on the side with the cheesecake.
