Sour Cream Lemon Cheesecake

My family and I are not huge cheesecake eaters, but this is one recipe we all love.

Ingredients:

  • 2 (8 oz.) pgks. cream cheese, room temperature
  • Ad

  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust (or homemade)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

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.

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 55 Minutes

I love a nice lemon cheesecake and this recipe sounds different than the usual plain cheesecake. I think I will try this tomorrow as I have extra cream cheese around since it was on sale. Sounds yum.

The sour cream topping baked on top made this one of the best cheesecakes I ever ate, thanks for sharing!
