This is easy and light and can be topped with a strawberry or blueberry mash that makes it truly special!
Mix and pat into a round pie pan to fit:
1 and 1/4 cups Graham crackers, crushed (I don't use pre-made crusts)
1/4 melted butter (I use the organic, low salt kind)
Beat 8 oz. cream cheese until fluffy (I do this in a mixer)
--1/2 cup sugar
--1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
--1/2 teaspoon vanilla
--dash of salt
--2 eggs (I use extra large, organic), one egg each time beaten before adding to mixture
Pour the above mixture into the crust and bake in oven for 20 minutes at 325 degrees F.
Beat 1 cup sour cream (I do this in a small bowl with a spoon) with 1-2 Tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like it), and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Wait 10 minutes for the cheesecake to cool (this is important) before carefully spooning and spreading the sour cream mixture on top.
Bake 5-10 minutes at 325 degrees F.
Cool and then chill before adding any topping.
I have never had a complaint about this one, not even from those who don't usually like cheesecake!
