I make this simple cheesecake for all family special occasions. It has even been requested as birthday gifts :) The longer it is refrigerated, the thicker it will become. Making it the day before is ideal. You can also vary the amount of lemon juice to make it more/less tart. The result is a very creamy dessert that is a definite crowd pleaser!
