Notes about this recipe

    This cheesecake just gets better every time I make it. For the 4th of July barbecue I made the cheesecake the day before and then just before the guests arrived for the barbecue I mixed about 1 cup each of blueberries, raspberries and cut-up strawberries in a bowl with 1/4 cup sugar and 1-2 tablespoons of Clear Creek Blackberry Liqueur. I covered the berry mixture and let it sit in the refrigerator until time for dessert. The results were fabulous! Not only did the berries make the cheesecake slices look very festive and colorful but the flavor combination of the lemony cheesecake and lush berries was heavenly.

    This is the best cheesecake I have ever made. I have made it twice and both times my guests and family raved about it. The texture is light and creamy and not overwhelmingly sweet or rich. The tart lemon curd layer on top is essential to giving a real lemon zing.
