Christine NelsonThis easy to follow recipe will deliver a creamy, lightly sweetened cheesecake without all of the fuss of a long baking time. My family loves it and I enjoy serving them a nice treat that’s made from real ingredients.

I’ve always been leery of people who don’t like cheesecake.  Its creamy, its delicious and full of eggs and cream cheese. My favorite food groups!

I adapted this recipe from Sally Fallon’s version in the book Nourishing Traditions. When I followed her recipe to a T it turned out too firm and more like gelatin. Jello jigglers are nice for the kids, but I didn’t want my cheesecake having the same type of texture. Plus, it just didn’t have much flavor.

So I added a bit more milk, more vanilla, some lemon juice and zest. Voila! My idea of the perfect cheesecake. It has a nice hint of lemon that isn't overpowering and the sliced strawberries are completely optional, but add a nice touch that my kids especially enjoy.

Serve this as a nice treat after Sunday supper.
