This is one of those recipes I recreated, because my family loves cheesecake, and Lemon Meringue pie, but my husband does not like the meringue part, so as a compromise, I came up with this unique version, that greatly pleased my daughter Briana, and my husband as well. This is one of the best compromises I ever made, because it has been a family favorite ever since. We love the tart lemon flavor on top of the cheese cake. I am sure you will too. This is one of the 795 recipes that is included in my cookbook: SHARING OUR FAVORITE RECIPES.Very simple and easy to make.
