Recipe Details

Bake Time:
72 minutes
12 servings
Good for parties/potlucks, Kid friendly


1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 3/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 or 5 eggs (enough to make 1 cup)

5 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese or (3 low fat & 2 reg. pkgs)


  1. Beat softened cheese until creamy.

  2. Add vanilla.

  3. Mix next four ingredients, (note: important to put lemon peel in flour to coat it), gradually blend into cheese. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating after each just to blend.

  4. Gently stir in whipping cream.

  5. Turn into crust-lined pan.

  6. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes; reduce heat to 300 degrees and continue baking for 1 hour. May need a little time longer because of the water.

Note: If cheesecake is getting too brown cover top with foil with hole torn out of the center so that middle of cheesecake continues baking

  1. Remove from oven; cool.

  2. Loosen sides with spatula after 1/2 hour.

  3. Remove sides at end of 1 hour.

Note: This cheesecake is at its very best if refrigerated overnight.

Taste is wonderful, but I do add Blue Berry pie filling to each slice before serving. MUCH easier than my Grandmothers recipe.
