My coworkers noted my lack of bringing in treats as of late and requested a sweet treat with cream cheese. I compiled a list of several recipes from my Pinterest dessert board and they choose Lemon Bar Cheesecake. It is essentially a cheesecake stuck in the middle of a lemon bar. There are three steps... crust (which is like a short bread), lemon curd and cheesecake. I made the crust and curd on Saturday and the cheesecake on Sunday.
The crust was easy to prepare - all in a food processor and then rests in the refrigerator. The lemon curd was made super simple using the microwave. Finally, the cheesecake was rich and also easy to put together. I used neufchatel cream cheese and this did not affect the taste at all. I also prepared the cake in a 9 x 13 pan and this worked perfectly.
