2. Next whip the double cream until you start to form soft peaks and the cream has thickened.
3. Then add in the cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice and zest from 1 lemon and combine well.
4. Now that you have your filling, place the mixture evenly into the servings bowls and top with some more lemon zest as a garnish.
5.Place the cheesecakes in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours before serving.
