A super tasty option for dessert.

Practically any kind of cheesecake is perfectly delicious, but this lemon ripple version might be one of the best you’ll ever try. The recipe uses a classic combination of cream cheese and thickened cream for that amazingly rich taste, but has a zesty lemon curd swirled throughout for a fresh burst in every bite. It’s perfect for summer entertaining and makes a great alternative dessert to serve the family on Christmas day. You can serve this cheesecake on it’s own or paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Enjoy!
