The final recipe I’m sharing as part of the Belmont Forum Christmas recipes is my baked lemon cheesecake. It’s also one of the first ever dishes I made that I was truly proud of! Make this cheesecake ahead of time and keep it in the fridge before serving. The buttery crust and the creamy filling are the perfect indulgence with some fresh berries to cut through the sweetness. This is always a real crowd pleaser.
Sometimes the cake might crack on top, but the great thing is since you’re covering it with berries you can usually hide the flaws. But if you bang it down enough to get rid of the air bubbles and leave it in the oven to cool, you should be able to avoid any major cracks forming.
