I’m not a big baker, but sometimes I crave! This recipe is so good, luscious, simple to make, even for non-bakers like me!

cook time




1 Premade Graham Cracker Crust or you can make your own

8 ounces Cream Cheese 2 packages

8 ounces Mascarpone Cheese 2 packages

1.25 cup Granulated Sugar

1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

4 tablespoons Meyer Lemon Juice

1 teaspoons Meyer Lemon Zest

2 teaspoons Rose Water optional

3 Medium Eggs


Step 1

Heat the oven to 325 degrees. In an electric mixer, mix the cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, meyer lemon juice and zest and rose water (optional), and cream together until thoroughly mixed. You may have to scrape the sides of the bowl a couple times with a spatula to make sure all the cheeses are incorporated.

Step 2

One at a time, add each egg and mix in together until you've done all three. Take the cheesecake mixture and put it slowly in the graham cracker crust...or on your own. (You may have a little extra)

Step 3

Bake in the oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes — until the middle isn't jiggling as much anymore.

Step 4

Let cool and set in the fridge until fully chilled before serving. It will get creamier and come together in the fridge. Serve with your favorite berries and whipped cream!
