Cheesecakes have an exotic feel, and yet they are so easy and quick to prepare, as you can see from the example of this Sinful Lemon Cheesecake! This no-fuss recipe starts with readily-available digestive biscuits as the base. Within minutes, the nice crumbly biscuit base transforms into a dessert beyond comparison, once it is filled with rich cream cheese and topped with a zesty lemon sauce, which gives it an attractive glaze finish!
