Lemon Meringue Cheesecake


Tart, sweet, decadent Lemon Meringue Cheesecake !  So good - everyone will want the recipe !

Lemon Meringue Cheesecake is a creamy, tart, delectable dessert, perfect to serve for dessert, tea time treats and especially great when you have to take with a dessert to a family gathering.


A simple crust, easy filling, homemade Lemon Curd and all topped with a thin Meringue layer - what's not to love !


Lemon Cheesecake is one of my family's favorites and just about always a first request when I am out of ideas. But, as a food blogger, I also like to try out new (or sometimes decades old!) recipes for Lemon Cheesecakes.


I found this recipe for a Lemon Meringue Cheesecake in a leaflet from one of the Cheese brands I absolutely love, and knew immediately it will be a good one ! And it was .. is !

Not sure whether I have a favorite part of the Cheesecake, as one, especially myself, usually would say the Cheesecake filling, or oh the Curd makes all the difference ! This Lemon Meringue Cheesecake just works with all the flavors combined in one bite - another reason I like lower Cheesecakes (see more below)



I baked this particular Cheesecake in a round pie dish (I have an unusual size dish, which is much bigger than the popular 20cm ( 8 inch ) dish), because I prefer Cheesecakes a little lower than the usual baked Cheesecakes where a springform pan is used.


As I know my non-standard dish is not easily available, I therefore recommend using a springform pan, unless you have a pie dish which is around 30cm ( 14 inch ) in diameter. The recipe and baking times remain the same.


Now, this Cheesecake might look like a lot of work but once you get started you will see it is not all that much. Only the layers which are prepared (and cooked / baked) in various stages take a little time. As with all baked Cheesecakes the cooling down period is always the worst, don't you agree ? It is pure agonizing having smelled the Cheesecake baking and then you have to wait for it to cool.

That being said, if you want to treat your family and friends with a decadent treat, this Lemon Meringue Cheesecake is just the sweet treat you are after !


NOTE: Decrease the Lemon Zest in the Filling and/or the Curd for a less tart Cheesecake if that is your preference. You could also use store-bought Lemon Curd, instead of the Homemade version below, of which you will need about one cup.

  7. So I have had lemon meringue cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory and it is delicious but when I tried making it at home I totally failed! I'm abysmal at making cheesecakes but your recipe looks so perfect and straightforward that I think I need to give it another try!

  8. I seriously feel like I could lick the meringue off the screen every time I see the pictures! I've always thought cheesecakes were super long to make to but I'm seeing your results and it's pushing me to try! Thanks for the recipe!
