One of the Easter treats offered at Walt Disney World at Epcot’s Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe is Disney Springtime Lemon Cheesecake. This colorful single serve cheesecake is beautiful and I just couldn’t resist recreating this at home for our celebration.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
This recipe took a bit of trial and error for me to figure out how to get a great mini cheesecake and I’m thrilled with the results. I decided on a no bake cheesecake and worked until I got the lemon flavor just right. I really liked the Adams food color for the springtime shades as they turned out very pastel and pretty.
More Easter Inspiration!
Last year I joined #SpringSweetsWeek and created some fun recipes I encourage you to revisit this year.
Disney Springtime Lemon Cheesecake Recipe
Graham Cracker Crust
- 2 3/4 oz. (1/2 packet) graham crackers, crushed
- 3 tbsp. butter, melted
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese (get the correct name), softened
- 1 cup lemon curd
- 1 tsp. lemon extract
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup whipping cream
- spring sprinkles
- Candy Easter eggs
Graham Cracker Crust
- Crush graham crackers in food processor. Add sugar and melted butter and pulse until completely combined.
- Firmly press crumb mixture evenly in the bottom of each cavity of a mini cheesecake pan.
- Bake crust at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
- Whisk whipping cream on medium high speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Save for later in the refrigerator.
- In a large bowl, whip cream cheese, lemon curd, lemon extract and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Fold in the whipped cream.
- Separate cheesecake mixture into four bowls. Color each bowl with a different color (purple, blue, yellow, pink) and mix to combine.
- Spoon over baked graham cracker crust in layers. Start with purple, follow with blue, then yellow and finally pink. You may want to tap pan on counter between each layer to make sure it’s settled into the pan and even.
- Put cheesecake in the freezer to set up for at least 1 hour.
- Loosen the cheesecake from the pan and place on serving dish. Top with spring sprinkles and candy Easter eggs.
