Triple citrus cheesecake is classic New York style cheesecake, infused with the tangy flavors of lemon, lime, and orange. It is made easy to share with a crowd.

Cheesecakes are popular year ’round, but nothing sets the special Holiday tone quite like serving a thick and creamy slice of cheesecake for dessert. Sure, gorgeous cheesecakes in all shapes, sizes, and flavors can be purchased at bakeries and warehouse clubs across the land, but in my experience, those store bought varieties are more focused on the toppings than the flavor of the cheesecake itself.
While I wouldn’t decline a slice with gooey caramel-raspberry-white-chocolate-bavarian-chocolate-cherry-wonder toppings, those cheesecakes are too fussy. With their tiny slices being separated by parchment paper, and bazillion different toppings falling off all over the place. Call me a purist, but cheesecake should be simple, creamy, and rich. All those toppings serve to do is mask a mediocre cheesecake with a bunch of sugary window dressing.
Obviously, I feel very strongly about cheesecake.
I’ve received dozens of emails seeking advice on mastering the art of the perfect cheesecake. While a perfect cheesecake made in a spring form pan is both beautiful and tasty, it does take a little time and patience. No-Bake Cheesecakes are always an option when time and patience are in short supply, but the texture isn’t quite the same as their baked counterparts. Both varieties can be difficult to transport to holiday parties without begging for a mishap along the road.
Triple Citrus Cheesecake is a thick and creamy New York style cheesecake, infused with a tang of lemon, lime, and orange flavors. A big slice is perfectly rich and wonderful all on it’s own. No fuss. No muss. No tears caused by a cheesecake falling apart after hitting a pothole during transport.
Triple Citrus Cheesecake bridges the gap between cheesecake perfection and ease of preparation; also being perfectly portable because it’s made in a 13″ x 9″ x 2″ baking pan.
Comfortably Domestic Tip: For a festive touch, try serving Triple Citrus Cheesecake bar-style, alongside bowls of cherry pie filling, hot fudge, and salted caramel sauce so that guests may top their slices of cheesecake as desired.
