My friend gave me this lemony cheesecake recipe. It has a light lemon flavour. You can make the recipe as is, or skip the preserves and fresh fruit. You could also try using your favourite fresh fruit instead of strawberries... Blueberries would also be nice!

Cheesecake is great! It is the easiest recipe that I've found!!! We added blueberries to the top of the cheescake for an even more colorful and fruity dessert. Everbody loves it!!! - 16 Feb 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really liked this recipe... it sounded odd to me. Lemon, strawberries, and apricots... But it was great and it has become one of our favorites. - 10 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The cheesecake itself is awesome! The topping, not so much. I followed the recipe exactly, but the apricot topping never set up, so when I took it to my sister's for Easter, I got glaze everywhere! Even a slight tip of the cake plate sent the glaze running, which made a mess in my car and on my clothes. Next time, I'll bake the cheesecake as directed, but top it with a little fresh fruit compote right before serving. - 06 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
