Creamy and Delicious Cheesecake

This cheesecake is creamier than most cheesecakes, and very easy to make. Use grated lemon zest or 1 teaspoon lemon extract for flavoring. Simple ingredients and very easy to make with a suprising result: It tastes so much nicer than the cheesecakes sold in cafes or bakeries. I also use it for cheese cup cakes. Just put the crust into baking cups and pour the batter.
