Ah, the layers of this cheesecake get better and better—from the crumbly buttery biscuit base to the soft cheesecake in the middle, to the lemony kiwi glaze on top. Use properly ripe kiwis to get the perfect taste and avoid the sourness. In case kiwis are not available or not to your taste, you can substitute it with cherries or strawberries.
