HOW TO MAKE LEMON CURD CHEESECAKE
Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, flour, sugar, eggs, and lemon curd until smooth. Pour on top of the cookie crust and swirl in a few more drops of lemon curd. Place the cheesecakes in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the center is just slightly jiggly. Remove and allow to cool in the fridge overnight before serving.
CAN YOU MAKE CHEESECAKE AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes, cheesecake is best served the day after it is made as it would have had time to firm up in the fridge. Cheesecake will last up to 5 days if kept covered in the fridge.
CAN YOU OVERCOOK CHEESECAKE?
Yes, cheesecake can be overcooked. Overcooked cheesecake will be dry and mealy and will often have a crack in the center.
WHAT MAKES A CHEESECAKE CRACK?
Overcooking, overmixing (incorporating too much air into the cheesecake batter) or cooking the cheesecake at too high heat can all cause cracking. If the oven is too hot, the filling will rise quickly and will deflate when cooling which can result in cracking. It’s best to allow the cheesecake to cook slowly at a lower temperature.
WILL CHEESECAKE FIRM UP IN FRIDGE?
For the creamiest cheesecake, make sure to remove the cheesecake from the oven when the edges are set with the center still slightly jiggly. The cheesecake will set up in the fridge and will be deliciously creamy.
