The lemon cheesecake has been trying to bust into other posts recently so we though it needed a blog of its own.
This is not the normal NY Style that we love to no end but one where the egg whites are whipped to nearly stiff peaks and folded into the rest of the batter.
Some folks, like my daughter, think cheesecakes should have a graham cracker crust. But I say, just like in bread, anything that tastes great is never a problem. Oreo cookies are never a probem when it comes to taste especially if you add melted butter to them while processing them to crumbs.
We also whipped up some fresh cherry and bourbon sauce just in case then cheesecake had some poison in it and needed alcohol to kill off the offending organism. It seemed to work since no one has come down with anything remotely close to consumption - so far.
