Anyone have a nice lemon cheese cake recipe?

Baked ones would be nice or unbaked fine. Just want a fail proof easy one.

Tangy lemon vs the more sweeter fake lemon taste would be nice.

On the back of the Lemon (or maybe it was Lime) Greggs jelly is the easy one.

Thanks, is that a tangy lemon juice type one? I mean not sour but like real lemons,, I have tried a jelly one and it wasn't very lemony,. May have been a different one tho

This is a very old recipe and has no gelatine. I am going to make this and top with some raspberries but it goes very well passionfruit as a topping. It is very lemony, tangy and nice.

1 quiche pan sprayed well otherwise the base will stick and will be difficult to get out. A shallow pie pan will do well too.

1 pkt arrowroot or any sweet biscuit crushed
125g butter melted
Mix together. If the biscuit mixture is too dry (arnotts biscuits are very dry) then add another 25g melted butter. Press into the quiche pan. Use a tablespoon to make the base smooth and make sure you go up the sides too. Chill in the fridge while making the filling.

250g traditional cream cheese at Room Temp (low fat does not work )
1 tin condensed milk
100ml fresh squeezed lemon juice. if you want a bit more lemon flavour then add zest of 1 lemon.

Beat cream cheese till there are no lumps. Add half a tin condensed milk and beat in, then add the half and beat in. Scrape the sides of the bowl and beat again to make sure there are no chunks of cream cheese. Add lemon juice and mix well.
Spread onto the base. Leave for a few hours to chill.
This won't set like gelatine based ones but it does a soft set like pot set yoghurt. I am always told it is one of the best cheesecakes.
