Summer Lemon Cheesecake

This is one of the most simplest desserts I have ever made! My husband and I make this every summer and enjoy it out in the sunshine of our garden. I’ve already made this a few times in the space of a few weeks in honor of the great weather we’ve been having in London. This small cheesecake serves 4-6 people (or big double servings for 2!) and is deliciously light and refreshing!
