Pour cream cheese mixture over the prepared crust. Bake for 15 minutes and then decrease temperature to 200 degrees. Bake for an hour and ten minutes or until the center no longer looks wet and shiny.

Remove the cake from the oven and run a knife around the inside edge of the pan; turn off the oven and return the cake back to the oven for an additional hour. Chill, uncovered, overnight.

To make the glaze: In a small saucepan, stir the lemonade concentrate, lemon juice, cornstarch, and food coloring together. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cool and stir two minutes longer. Pour glaze over cheesecake and spread evenly. Garnish with lemon slices. Chill until ready to serve.
