To save a lot of cleaning up I line the pie dish with tin foil, enough that it goes over the sides. With this you can also lift the cheesecake out of the dish, making it a lot easier to cut than when it's in the dish. This takes about 8 hours to set so I recommend making it in the morning.
If you don't like the taste of a lot of lemon, substitute some orange juice as well as the lemon, and put a little orange rind in with the lemon.
Altered ingredient amounts. I'm not sure why but my base was too dry so I had to add quite a lot more butter (maybe 75g all up). I also added a teaspoon of lemon juce to the base, very yummy :-) - 13 Aug 2010
If you cannot get Vanilla Wine Biscuits you can use Marie Biscuits or plain Digestive Biscuits to make the base of this cheesecake. - 08 Jun 2010
I like lemon:-) so had no trouble with this one. Love the mix of condensed milk and cream cheese...is this unusual for a cheese cake or have I just not been paying attention? I think the sweetness of the condensed milk goes well with the lemon better than sugar would. I also think lime would go with this well. Thanks! - 06 Mar 2009
