I'm always quick to give my mom credit for this lovely dessert recipe when people compliment me on it. The fruit topping makes each slice so attractive, and you can detect a hint of citrus in the creamy light-texture filling.

"A FRIEND gave me this recipe, and I love it so much! The secret is in the bakingI just let it barely show little bubbles on the surface before I take it out of the oven. You don't want cheesecake to bake too long."
I first made this for an open house 3 years ago and everybody liked it. It's very easy to make and tastes delicious. Cheesecake is popular in these parts - it's fun to have it for an appetizer instead of dessert for a change.
At our church, we give seven performances of a Living Christmas Tree every holiday seasonthen hold an open house after each one, I've served this lemony cheesecake at those gatherings for years, and it's always gotten raves.
My mother-in-law loved chocolate maltsand cheesecakes, too. Can you guess who passed this recipe on to me? Sometimes, I substitute pretzel crumbs for the graham cracker crumbs. They make a surprisingly good crust!
