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.


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!
