Japanese-style Cheesecake

This Japanese-style Cheesecake recipe is very simple to make and so delicious it will have you wanting more.

Japanese-style Cheesecake

There are three different types of Japanese cheesecakes: Baked, Rare (no-bake), and Soufflé. This recipe is the baked cheesecake version and similar to the regular cheesecake.

Japanese-style Cheesecake

The Japanese-style cheesecake uses lemon juice in the filling which gives a light lemony flavor that you don’t need to add sauce or fruit toppings. It is good just the way it is, and it is also light and creamy. This recipe is so easy to make you just need to combine the filling ingredients and pour into the ready made graham pie crust. We used Keebler Ready Crust Graham Pie Crust that we bought at the grocery store. It’s available in the baking aisle at any grocery store, Amazon Grocery, or you can make your own graham pie crust.

Once the cheesecake is done baking, make sure you let it cool down until the filling has settled down.  You can eat immediately or let it chill in the fridge for a few hours to firm up.

Bon appétit!
