It is very important for the above recipe that you try and locate and use Lisbon Lemons. The popular Meyer lemon won't set the cheese as well and after a day or so will 'weep' out.

So saying that, this is the recipe I cut my teeth on and loved it for a long time.

I second this recipe. its so yum! !

as a luxurious variation I have chucked in a cup full of fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, boysenberries) and the crumbled a flake chocolate over the top and it turns out divine! !
I didnt know the trick with the lemon and have had it not set a few times, so started dissolving some gelatine in a tiny bit of hot water and putting it in the mixture and setting it in the fridge for a few hours.

This is the lemon one I make and I chill the evaporated milk overnight.

Lemon Cheesecake

1 pkt malt biscuits crushed
125g butter melted

1 tin of evaporated milk chilled
2/3 cup hot water
1 tsp Vanilla essence
Lemon juice
250g cream cheese
1 cup castor sugar
1 packet lemon jelly

Mix biscuits and butter together and press into an oven proof shallow dish. Bake at 150c for 10 minutes, but no longer as it burns easily. Dissolve jelly in water and make up to 1 cup with lemon juice. Beat cheese, sugar and essence well. Beat evap milk (in beater) until very thick. Add cheese mixture to milk and beat. Add jelly slowly to avoid lumps and mix well. Pour into cooked base and refrigerate overnight. Freezes well.
