Looking for a Cheesecake Recipe from old Bon Appetit Magazine

Hi, I hope someone can help me. Several years ago Bon Appetit published a recipe for cheesecake with lemon curd swirled through the cake before baking. The recipe used not only cream cheese, but heavy whipping cream as well and it was a lucious dessert. A photo was on the cover the magazine. I have lost the recipe and the magazine cover so I don't know what year the recipe appeared but think it would have been in the 1980's. I would really appreciate it if anyone has this recipe and is willing to share. Thank you in advance.

  1. Is it this recipe for Lemon Swirl Cheesecake from April 1995? It was on the cover.

      1. HI I WAS LOOKING FOR A RECIPE FOR A GREAT CHEESECAKE RECIPE WITH A PECAN CRUST FROM A MAGAZINE I CANNOT LOCATE IN MY COLLECTION. IN MY SEARCH I THINK I FOUND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR! IT IS ON THE GOURMET MAGAZINE WEBSITE AND IT WAS THE JULY 2006 ISSUE AND IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD. NOT LIKE THE ONES I SAW ON YOUR OTHER REPLIES. THIS LOOKS LIKE THE REAL THING! I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO LINK IT FOR YOU BUT IF YOU GO TO WWW.GOURMET.COM AND SEARCH FOR CHEESECAKE RECIPES IT WILL COME UP. GOOD LUCK, I HOPE YOU GET THIS INFO!

          I think you might be referring to the same recipe that blue room linked above (from July 2006). It does look good!
          Would you like help trying to track the pecan-crusted cheesecake? What flavour was the cheesecake?

        2. Hello, I am looking for the same recipe as I only lost it last year...none of your replies below are the same, it was in the 80's, maybe '86 and on the cover. It had a shortbread crust and a custard instead of the traditional baking method. It's my favorite cheesecake in the whole world. I'd love to find this recipe again, if you find it, please let me know. Thanks

              Yes, this is the recipe! My first day at this site, and great help. What did we do before computers? I tore this recipe out of the magazine and brought it to Costa Rica with me, then lost it. Thank you!
