  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and butter and press into an 8" pie pan and up the sides.
  • Pre-heat an oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy; gradually beat in the 1/2 cup sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Pour the filling into the graham cracker crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes until set.
