Layered Lemon Cheesecake
Husband loved it!
Personally, I don't care for lemon anything, but my husband is a true lemon fan and was very happy with the taste of this cake.

Loved by all who tried!
This cake did not look as pretty as the picture (but what ever does), it did not look bad and the flavor was there in spades! Very creamy and lemony. My husband and I both loved it and so did our parents, one of whom is a huge lemon fanatic! The cake overall is small, but so rich you only want a small piece. We definitely got more than 12 servings out of it - very satisfying!

Not worth the price
After opening up the box and seeing a squooshed side of this cheesecake, my first thought was "I overpaid". It looks nothing like the "layered" look in the picture. It isn't as "high " as it appears in the photos. Never going to waste my money again. Way too overpriced for this product.

The cheesecake did not look like the photo online or in the catalog because it did not have the distinct layers as shown. This discrepancy did not bother me one bit as I fell in love with the rich lemony flavor and the smooth consistency of the filling. The crust was moist and flavorful, and the sweet topping did not overwhelm the mix of the other flavors. This scrumptious dessert is going on my Thanksgiving table this year, and I know my guests will find it as pleasurable as I do.

I sent these cheesecake bars to friends for Christmas. They LOVED them, even fought over who was going to get the last one. Buy these over the Lemon Creme Brulee Bars, sent both and the Layered Lemon Cheesecake was the winner.

This tasted like shortbread with a little lemon on it. We didn't taste the cheese. It was very expensive.

Looked good in the catalogue, but again didn't look that way when received.

Looked nothing like the picture
We ordered this because of our generally good experience with holiday food products from Norm Thompson. We ordered the Layered Lemon Cheesecake as a special dessert for a holiday dinner, but I am sorry to say that the item received was a big disappointment.
What we got was a very flat item - less than 1/2-inch thick - which looked NOTHING like the catalog photo. The cheesecake bottom was very hard, there was barely any lemon layer at all, and the topping tasted dry and stale. Our guests didn't say anything, but we could tell that everybody found the "special" dessert underwhelming.
Maybe the vendor used by Thompson had an off batch, because this product was truly a huge disappointment. We love lemon desserts but will never order this product again.
