Tall & Creamy Meyer Lemon Cheesecake (TWD)
Sorry everyone...a WAY late post for last week's Tuesday With Dorie selection, Tall and Creamy Cheesecake. This is a FABULOUS recipe, and it's helped me overcome my fear of baking cheesecakes. Okay, confession--- I've never successfully baked a respectable cheesecake until I tried Dorie's recipe here. Not only does the cheesecake taste delicious, the recipe is foolproof as I get great results every time I make it.
I opted for a meyer lemon version, taking advantage of the great looking meyer lemons at the farmers market. I used a 7" springform pan and made half of the filling recipe. I still made a full recipe for the graham crust, as I love a thicker crust. Unlike your typical heavy and dense cheesecake, this cheesecake is light and fluffy. I loved the subtle citrus flavor of the meyer lemon, and raspberries were a perfect accompaniament.
