Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

  1. Position rack in middle of oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Butter bottom and side of a 9 inch springform pan. Have a roasting pan ready. Boil water for water bath.
  2. Stir crumbs and butter with fork in medium bowl until combined. Press mixture into bottom of pan. Bake 8-10 minutes, until crust is set. Cool on wire rack.
  3. Reduce oven to 325 degrees.
  4. Process sugar and zest until zest is finely ground.
  5. Beat goat cheese and cream cheese with electric mixer in medium bowl, beginning on low speed and increasing to medium-high, until light and fluffy.
  6. Reduce speed to medium, add sugar mixture and lemon juice, beat until smooth, scraping side of bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  7. Wrap outside of springform pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Pour filling into pan and set it in roasting pan. Place in oven, and carefully pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan to reach halfway up side of springform pan.
  8. Bake about 1 1/2 hours, until center is almost set but still slightly jiggly.
  9. Do not over-bake; cheesecake will firm as it cools. Remove roasting pan from oven and let cheesecake cool in water bath for 15 minutes. Remove from bath and cool on a wire rack. Remove foil. Refrigerate cheesecake in pan, loosely covered, for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  10. Let cheesecake stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free brand of graham crackers.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Rumor has it you can freeze whole lemons and grate them while still frozen whenever you want to pump up the lemon flavor in a dish. Next time you have some lemons not getting used, give it a try (and let us know how it goes).

  • If you need to soften a block of cream cheese before using it, you can unwrap it and heat it in the microwave on high for 10-15 seconds at a time until it is soft enough.

  • If you find that you're always missing lemon zest, purchase lemon extract and substitute a 1/2 teaspoon extract for every tablespoon zest.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic lemons if you're using them for zest.
