Direction for Ganache:

Direction for Cheesecake:

In the bowl of stand mixer, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, heavy cream and sour cream. Beat the mix until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and continue beating. Add lemon zest and vanilla extract to finish.

Putting It All Together

The general construction is crust - ganache - cheesecake - ganache - peanut butter mousse - ganache side trimming. Hence, begin with spreading a thing layer of ganache on the crust. Then scoop cheesecake and flatten its surface as best as possible. Then spread another thin layer of ganache on top of the cheesecake. Lay down peanut butter mousse to complete the top. Pipe chocolate ganache on top edges to finish. If there are any chocolate shaving, sprinkle them on top of the mousse.

Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
