Lemon Layered Cheesecake

"Monica Barnes is the talent booker for the Steve Harvey Morning Show. She loves my Lemon Cheesecake. She loves it so much that I have to make two for the office. One is for the staff and the other is for her to take home and eat all week. She will send me daily selfies of her dining on the Lemon Cheesecake. I use Duncan Hines Original Lemon Pie Filling to make this cheesecake and I never use sour cream."
—Rushion McDonald
