Meyer Lemon Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust, Wildcard Winner

Meyer Lemons. Lucy Mercer/A Cook and Her Books
Last January, I went on a Meyer lemon kick, using the orange-y lemons, or is that lemony oranges? in a plethora of sweets. Meyer lemon scones with dried blueberries, coconut macaroon tarts with Meyer lemon curd, and a Meyer lemon cheesecake with Biscoff crust. All were memorable recipes, but the cheesecake was spectacular. It's a riff on the classic Three Cities of Spain cheesecake published eons ago in Gourmet Magazine and probably the best-tasting and simplest-ever cheesecake to make.

Well, this little cheesecake has gotten quite a following ~ I submitted the recipe last year to Food 52 for the Best Citrus Recipes contest and it became a Community Pick, with a very nice review. And just today, it was a Test Kitchen Wildcard Winner, complete with a Glamour Food Shot and link from the front page of Food 52.

Day=Made

Check out the sweet pictures of this confection and if you want to impress your family and friends with a lemony dessert, pick up a bag of Meyer lemons and a package of Biscoff cookies and make this stupendous dessert!
