In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy, then add 1/2 cups sugar and lemon juice. Mix well and pour into graham cracker crust.
Place cheesecake on a cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, combine sour cream and 2 Tbsp. sugar. After baking for 45 minutes, spread the sour cream/sugar mixture over cheesecake and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Cool completely before slicing.
