lemon swirl cheesecake


if you like cheesecake and lemon pie, then this is the recipe for you! i have always gotten raves whenever i have served this, most recently at easter. originally from a 1995 bon apetite magazine.prep time does not include overnight chill time. the cheesecake and lemon curd can be made the day before you plan to serve it. refrigerate both and add topping to the cheesecake a few hours before serving.
