  • All the filling ingredients should be at room temperature.

  • Add flour, vanilla and lemon juice, mix well.
  • Add one egg at a time and beat after each egg.
  • Add the sour cream and beat well.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture into the springform pan.
  • Place on the top rack in the middle of a 325 degrees preheated oven for one hour and 15 minutes.
  • When time is up turn oven off, prop open oven door and leave in oven for one hour.
  • Remove from oven and let cool then refrigerate for 24 hours.


Remember this important tip : A cheesecake should season. The wait is worth it. The flavor ripens and becomes enriched.
