If you love cheesecake and lemons, you will love this pie!
For The Captain and I, it is a keeper. The filling was slightly tart, slightly sweet with a creamy texture and so delicious. Topping with whipped cream before serving is like icing on a cake. I would not have it any other way!
The recipe is adapted from the website Real Simple . . . the photo is from Real Simple. It shows a pre-made crust, but I wanted a graham cracker crust to make it more like a cheesecake. Great choice!
- Graham Cracker Crust
- 2-8 oz bars cream cheese (softened)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
- whipped cream
Combine all ingredients until smooth and pour into crust.
Bake at 325 degrees 40 to 50 minutes (filling will be set, but a bit wobbly).
Before serving, top with a layer of whipped cream.
