Little pockets of lemon pie filling peek through this lemony, luscious dessert.
Heat oven to 325°F.

Combine 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, sugar and lemon zest in 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.

Great recipe. I made it for Easter dessert and there were no left-overs. Everyone loved it; perfect dessert for spring and summer.
Wow this is a great cheesecake....LOVE IT! What more can I say!
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!
