Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.
Little pockets of lemon pie filling peek through this lemony, luscious dessert.
Heat oven to 325°F. Combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar in medium bowl; mix well. Press mixture onto bottom and up sides of 9- or 10-inch ungreased springform pan. Set aside.
Combine 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, sugar and lemon zest in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until very creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating at low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour mixture over crust. Drop 1 cup lemon pie filling by tablespoonfuls over mixture. Gently swirl with knife.
Bake 60-75 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is just set. Cool 5 minutes. Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan by running knife around inside of pan. Cool completely in pan 4 hours. Remove sides of pan.
Beat whipping cream in medium bowl until stiff peaks form; set aside. Combine 3-ounce package cream cheese, powdered sugar and remaining pie filling in another medium bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Gently stir in whipped cream. Spread over top of cooled cheesecake. Refrigerate at least 4 hours until chilled.
Just before serving, garnish with lemon jelly candy slices, raspberries and mint leaves, if desired.

Perfect lemon heaven!
Definitely a winner..... had to have a second slice (and small 3rd slice)
Thank you for this awesome recipe! I would give it 10 stars! I like to bake, so every year I like to bake my own birthday cheesecake. I made this Lemon Cheesecake yesterday for my birthday cake. It turned out fabulously. I was not disappointed. It was lighter than a regular cheesecake as I used low fat cream cheese and half sugar and half Splenda. It tasted like a lemon meringue pie!!! It was the bomb and looked just like the picture on the front of the Spring Cookbook.Making it the first time and serving it to my family was scary . . but! they liked it too! My husband had seconds. (Shame on me, I should have had more faith, when I use a Land O' Lakes recipe).This one is a keeper to same in my recipe file and email to my sisters!Thank you Land O' Lakes for making my birthday special!

Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
