I used to love making cheesecakes! I've shared so many on here over the years but slowed down with doing so in the past few months. No reason for that in particular. But making this recipe made me realize that my skills have gotten rusty. I guess I'll have to work on fixing that by making more cheesecakes!
With that being said though, this cheesecake is pretty awesome. It has a very strong lemon flavor with little blueberry bursts in the center. What more could you ask for?
For this recipe I used Frieda's sweet lemons. They are so perfect, giving you a bit of a sweeter lemon flavor. If you can't find Frieda's sweet lemons, no worries. Regular lemons should work just fine!
I really want to make an attempt at growing a lemon tree of my own. I have some seeds ready to go. All I have to do is plant them. Exciting stuff! Have you ever grown a lemon tree? If so, give me some tips! I don't have much of a green thumb, but I do have a lot of determination to give it a shot!
But anyways, let's get to the recipe, shall we?
