    Wow-this sounds wonderful. I won't be making this for a while. It is going to replace my Truffle Cheesecake recipe that I make every year for a big Mother's Day celebration. So Thanks!

    I had this Olive Garden dessert today. One of the most delicious cakes I've ever tasted! The filling is just right...not too lemony...not too sweet. :)
