 Lemon Curd Cheesecake
Adapted from Recipe. Coles. Com

Ingredients:
200g plain biscuits ( I’ve used Digestive Biscuits)
125g butter – melted
500g cream cheese – softened
½ cup sugar
2 Tbsp lemon zest , plus extra for topping
2 eggs

For Lemon Curd
2 Tbsp lemon zest
¼ cup lemon juice
½ cup sugar
40g butter- chopped & softened
2 egg yolks , lightly beaten 

Methods:

1)      Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan. Grease a 20cm springform cake tin. Pulse biscuits in a food processer until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl & add butter. Stir until combined. Spoon biscuit mixture into prepared cake tin and press evenly on base and sides. Cool in the fridge for at least 30 mins .

2)      In a medium-sized bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and lemon zest with an electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, until combined. Pour mixture into tin and place on a baking tray. Bake for 25-30 mins, or until just set in the centre. ** Turn off oven and leave cheesecake in the oven with the door ajar for a couple of hours or until oven is completely cool. Chill in the fridge for 2 hrs. 

3)      For the lemon curd, combine lemon zest, juice, sugar, butter and eggs in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5-10 mins, or until mixture thickens. Strain through a fine sieve onto a dinner plate or flat tray (**this helps the lemon curd cool more quickly). 


4)      Pour curd over cheesecake & spread evenly .  Making swirl wave with a fork  & chill the cheesecake  till serving . Sprinkle lemon zest over the cheesecake before serve .
