Line a spring-form pan with parchment paper. This is optional, but makes removing the cheesecake and transferring it to a plate a breeze!
Pulse walnuts in food processor until finely ground
Add remaining ingredients and process for 1 minute until it forms into a batter
Prepare your tools so that you can work quickly. You will need a mesh colander like the one pictured in the video to strain the lemon curd. You will also need a bowl you that the mesh colander will fit in so that you can pour the lemon curd into the colander with ease. Have this set up beside your cooking area.
Transfer the batter to your lined springform pan.
Working from the inside out, press batter into the spring-form pan making sure the batter goes to the edges and is pressed down firmly.
Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes
Remove from oven and cool completely before filling. (The middle will look like it’s not quite set up, and this is ok!)
Making The Cheesecake
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Make sure all of your ingredients are warmed!
Prepare your springform pan for a water bath. See the video & instructions on the blog post.
Combine Cream cheese and Bocha sweet and mix on low until smooth. If your mixture is lumpy, this means your cream cheese isn't warm enough. Warm it now before proceeding further. Also, make sure your other ingredients are warm. See the blog post for tips.
Add eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, vanilla, salt and almond extract to the cream cheese mixture. Mix on low until smooth.
Bake in a water bath for 60 minutes at 300 degrees. The water bath creates creamy, amazing results and is well worth the extra effort.
Turn off the oven and allow to set for 4 hours or overnight.

Add 1 tsp pure vanilla extract and 5 drops Young Living Vitality Lemon Essential Oil (optional). Taste the lemon curd and add additional drops of oil until you’re pleased with the tartness.
Allow the lemon curd to cool for about 30 minutes before pouring it on top of your cheesecake.(Cheesecake should still have the springform pan on it.
