Can You Substitute Cream Cheese For Any Other Cheese?
Cream cheese is what gives the cheesecake its unique creamy texture. But if you do not have cream cheese, don't worry, you can simply replace it with homemade hung curd. It works just as well and will also help save some money since cream cheese is slightly expensive and not easily available.
How Long Does Cheesecake Take To Set In The Refrigerator?
Cheesecake usually takes around 3 to 4 hours to set in the refrigerator. However, this may differ depending on the cooling temperature of your refrigerator. If you want to set it even more, we suggest you refrigerate it overnight. Also, make sure to cover the cheesecake with cling wrap while you place it in the fridge to avoid any exposure to air.

Transfer this mixture to a pan and press firmly onto the base using your fingers or the back of a spoon. Keep it in the fridge to chill for some time.
For the filling, beat the cream cheese and icing sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add lemon juice and lemon zest, and combine again. Now, in a separate bowl, whisk the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold this mixture into the cream cheese mixture and mix well. Add the melted and cooled gelatin and mix again.
