Philadelphia Lemon Cheesecake with Thermomix

What about a Philadelphia Lemon Cheesecake? Cheesecake is a dessert consisting of a topping made of soft, fresh cheese on a base made from biscuit: a fresh, soft and scented summer dessert. But you can eat it during the whole year!!!

Scent is even more intense in this recipe because of lemon.

So it isn't the classic Wild Berry Cheesecake we use to eat but it is a new one, an original one. Do you think cheese and lemon don't match perfectly? I thought that too. They always taught us that milk and lemon together cause acidity. But, I must say, in this case, they combine perfectly :-P!

Recipe has been created by Chiara Epifanio, a fan from Ricette-Bimby Facebook page (the Italian Version of Thermomix Recipes) and she called it "My own way cheesecake".

My Advice

You can leave the cake without any dressing and decorate every slice with a strawberry and a piece of chocolate. Then cover with icing sugar and voilà: a beautiful dish!

My variations: I used only 200gr of fresh cheese and, I used grapefruit squeeze instead of lemon juice. Delicious!
