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.

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

        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?

          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
          another lover of this particular recipe!!!!!

              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!

              I googled for a cover pic. and came up with the May '89 issue too; nothing else that seemed close. good luck!

                  Awesome, happy to help. Next time you've a question, just google back issues of _____, and you'll probably find what you need. Or, you can always ask here.
                  And now, I must needs try making this. Love lemon cheesecake.

                    Thank you! I never thought of that and just found the magazine for sale on backissues.com. It is May 1989 selling for $14.95. Good grief! How embarrasing. LOL

                      It is labor intensive but well worth the effort. Enjoy!

                      Hi, I just asked my friend to email the recipe back to me. Meanwhile, I will keep looking because I know darned well I have both the magazine and the page I tore out of original magazine. Lesson well learned, KEEP the magazines that have recipes you love! LOL

                      Thank you everyone for your help but none of the recipes are the one I was looking for. I decided to look on Ebay and was delighted to find the Bon Appetite magazine that has the recipe. After I received the magazine I found the recipe in a box in the garage. Now, of course, I am unable to lay my hands on the magazine or the copy of the recipe but I know they are around here. I also emailed it to a friend and am going to ask her to email it back. I will post here when I have it again and will share.
