Lemon Cheesecake

Cowbridge Kitchen

There are many flavours of Cheesecake to chose from but my personal favourite has to be a Lemon Cheesecake, made with cream cheese and lemon curd topping all on a crumbly digestive biscuit base.

It is a great idea to make your own digestive crumble mix or your own Digestive Biscuits for this recipe.
