This Easy Citrus Cheesecake is covered with lemon curd and fresh citrus for a quick and simple way to dress up a Sara Lee cheesecake.
Spring is in the air! I’m planning Easter dinner, thinking about Mother’s Day, and making lots and lots of recipes with all of the beautiful fruits and vegetables that are in stores right now.
Fresh citrus is one of my favorite things in early spring and I’m always looking for new ways to work it into a dessert. From grapefruit tarts, to lemon and thyme cookies, I love the bright, slightly sharp taste of lemons, limes, grapefruits, and oranges. This year Melinda and I have been a little obsessed with Cara Cara oranges, and Blood oranges. They have these beautiful pink and dark red centers that add a punch unexpected color to any dish.
With Easter quickly approaching, spring baby showers on the horizon, and Mother’s day just a couple of months away, there are lots of parties coming up and it never hurts to have a simple dessert recipe up your sleeve for those days when you want to wow people but you don’t have a lot of time to get it done. This easy citrus cheesecake is so good and only takes 10 minutes to make. You can get everything you need at Food Lion, a Sara Lee Classic Cheesecake, lemon curd, and some fresh citrus fruits.
I love lemon curd. It is the perfect mix of sweet and sour! I’ve made my own but it takes a decent amount of time so I was pretty excited when I started seeing it on shelves in the grocery store. I could eat it straight out of the jar but I thought it would be the perfect, EASY, way to turn a Sara Lee Classic Cheesecake into beautiful spring dessert. I spread about half a jar of lemon curd over the top of the cheesecake, making a thin layer of lemony goodness. Then I sliced up some Cara Cara oranges, blood oranges, lemons, and limes, and layered them on top to add a splash of color.
Doesn’t that look amazing? I didn’t have to spend hours baking a cheesecake and making my own lemon curd, and guess what? My friends and family are going to love it just as much as if I did…maybe more, Sara Lee makes a great cheesecake!
