French cheesecakes are creamily smooth and delicately perfumed with lemon and vanilla. They are made with a light, fresh, almost pourable cheese that has no trace of the curds of cottage cheese or ricotta, nor is it sticky like cream cheese. Called fromage frais or fromage blanc, it is available in more and more U.S. specialty markets. Whole-milk plain yogurt is a close substitute. This tart may be served on its own or with a topping of fresh berries, as I suggest here.
