  • 16 oz softened cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream room temperature
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a 9", deep-dish pie dish with nonstick spray, butter or shortening.
  • In a bowl, beat softened, room temperature cream cheese until creamy and not lumpy. A hand mixer will work best for this.
  • Add sugar, lemon zest, juice, and extract, beat until smooth.
  • Add each egg in and beat until just combined *do not over beat at this stage.
  • Fold in sour cream until just combined.
  • Bake for 30 mins at 350
  • Cool for one hour and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours to produce a firm pie. This cheesecake will taste better and set well when cold.
