Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not set.... I have now Exactly followed this recipe twice and each time I have had to take the mixture out of the tin and add gelatin to make it set. When I add the lemon juice it is supposed to thicken but never does, I know not why........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally scrumptious!! I make this with 150g gluten free hobnob’s so my husband can enjoy it too. I love trying different toppings on it. If you do this just leave out the lemon zest then the topping isn’t overpowered by the lemon flavour. We’ve had strawberry jam, chocolate sauce and sugar stars all of which works beautifully. This is my go to recipe when entertaining. Well done Carnation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! The recipe needs a tweek, but found 350g of Mascarpone is the best soft cheese to use. Also have 3 lemons to hand. I usually make a large one using 3 tubs of Mascarpone, 5 lemons and 2 tins of carnation. Best left to set overnight, but by increasing the amount of cream cheese and using Mascarpone rather than Philly (which I think most people use) you will find it sets beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely cheesecake everytime. I have made this numerous times over many years and everytime it has worked out perfectly and a winner with friends and family. It is so simple yet pretty to look at and very tasty. It is also lovely made with limes and either a ginger or chocolate base. You can make it in no time and usually set well before the 2 hours are done, you can make it for a simple pudding or a dinner party or buffet treat depending on if you jazz it up with fruit or extras. Can't beat it for a simple and easy delicious treat everytime.
