    This is a truly luscious Lemon Cheesecake with a silky smooth filling that literally melts in the mouth. Preparation is key with this one, as you can see the preparation times are long with the cooling. But trust me on this one, it is so worth it. Adding the lemon sauce with sour cream is a luxurious addition to this or any other Lemon Cheesecake. This little number is definitely worth the wait and effort involved in preparing it. Do not be tempted to take shortcuts, especially on the chilling side of things; it will ruin the final cheese cake for you. This luscious lemon cheese cake has always been a great hit for me any time i bring it out and the guests all comment on how well it tastes. I have even had requests from friends and family to make this one for them for their own parties and dinners.
