Directions

Step 1: Make Cheesecake Crust

To make crust, preheat oven to 180F. Generously coat the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with butter. Place graham crackers in a zip lock plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Transfer graham cracker crumbs in a large bowl. Then add melted butter, sugar and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour graham crackers mixture into the prepared pan and press evenly into the bottom and slightly up the sides. Place pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes until just golden. Remove pan from the oven and set aside while preparing cheesecake filling.

 

Step 2: Make Cheesecake Filling

To make cheesecake filling, in a large bowl add beaten cream cheese, flour, golden caster sugar and beat until well blended. Add vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon juice, sour cream, 3 eggs, 1 egg yolk and beat until incorporated. Transfer cheesecake filling into the prepared crust and spread it evenly.
