Throwback Thursday: Lemon Cheesecake

I love this lemon cheesecake. It’s a little tart, a little sweet…ok, a LOT sweet…and so easy to make in a pressure cooker.

As I’ve mentioned many times before, I’m not a baker, I’m a cook. Baking is chemistry, a precise balance between water and flour, gluten and yeast. Cooking is much more seat of the pants: “let’s throw it in there and give it a taste – we can always add more.” I’m definitely that kind of person in the kitchen. “What’s in the fridge – we can make it into something, I’m sure…”

Pressure cooked cheesecakes are my one exception, the only time I’m happy to bake. Or “bake” – essentially, I’m pressure steaming my cheesecakes. It’s a fantastic technique, and my ace-in-the-hole when I’m asked to bring desserts to a party.
