Lemon Cheese Frosted Pie

Who says that cheese is only for Italian cuisine. Cheese for me is sinful indulgence just like a bar of chocolate. Imagine having a soft and tender cheese cube which melts in your mouth and makes your brain go numb for seconds . 
Let's just say that we cant live with or without cheese.So lets talk about a recipe which makes you indulge in abundance of cheese and still very light on your palate. I have made this recipe with Mascarpone cheese but if you like then you can replace it with cottage cheese or cream cheese. The taste will still be delectable.  

Another interesting addition to this dish is lemon. Imagine lemons in desserts. I could not even think about putting them few years back but now as the theme is about using anything & everything we land up using the whole lemon. Hope you all find this recipe interesting and try it for the weekend lunch. Do post your comments and feedback.
