Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this recipe. I loved this recipe. Although I misead it and added more lemon to the cheesecake, it was gret. I think adding the extra lemon gave it a lttle extra kick that it needed. I also added 1/2 tsp grated lemon peel to the glaze as I cooked it. It was a big hit and I will make this again!
