Easy and Creamy Cheesecake

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1-¼ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter

For the filling:

  • 2 (8 oz) blocks cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice, optional
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

For the crust:

  • Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter and pack mixture firmly into bottom and sides of 9-inch pie pan.
  • Chill in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.

For the filling:

  • Preheat oven to 300f degrees.
  • Mix cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, vanilla extract and lemon juice in a mixer.
  • Add eggs one at a time to the mixture and thoroughly combine.
  • The key to getting a really creamy cheesecake is to mix these ingredients together really well until the mixture is kind of thick and smooth (about 4-5 minutes).
  • Pour into pie crust.
  • Bake for about 65-70 minutes at 300f degrees. Allow cheesecake to cool completely in the refrigerator before serving (about 3-4 hours)
