Whipped Lil' Moo Original Lemon Cheesecake

Whipped Lil' Moo Original Lemon Cheesecake 

Difficulty level: Moderate

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 12 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 32 ounces Lil' Moo Original
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup honey, plus additional honey for serving
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 4 whole eggs + 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, preferably Meyer lemon
  • Powder sugar and fresh berries, for serving

Directions:

  1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch spring form pan.
  2. Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a clean counter and brush with melted butter. Repeat, layering 1 more time, placing the sheets of dough over top of each other. Carefully transfer the buttered phyllo to the prepared pan, gently pressing it to fit inside. Repeat, over lapping each layer 3 more times until you have completely covered the bottom and sides of the pan to create the crust and have used 8 sheets of dough. Don't stress about making this perfect, just cover the pan with phyllo and everything will be ok. 
  3. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the Lil' Moo Original and cream. Pulse until smooth and creamy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the honey, sugar,  eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, and lemon juice, pulse until combined and no streaks of yellow egg remain, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top. 
  4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and let the cheesecake sit in the oven another 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Transfer to the fridge to chill completely, at least 2 hours or serve at room temperature. 
  5. Release the cake from the mold. Serve with fresh berries, a drizzle of honey, and a dusting of powdered sugar, if desired.
