Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • In large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and flour until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each until the mixture is smooth and blended.
  • Add the lemon juice and the vanilla; stir in the lemon juice.
  • Whip the egg whites until they form soft peaks, then fold in the cream cheese mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into a greased 9 inch springform pan and bake for an hour, 10 minutes until the center of the cake is firm.
  • Cool the cake in the oven for one hour with the door cracked open, then cool to room temperature before putting it in the refrigerator.
  • These directions are vital. If you don't cool the cheesecake down slowly it might crack. This is important for all cheesecake recipes.

    This looks wonderful!

    I was also wondering about the addition of the sour cream. I'm assuming it's blended in the cream cheese mixture before the egg yolks but it'd be great to know for sure.

    I was looking over the recipe and noticed that in the ingredients you say to have a cup of sour cream, but in the directions, you don't mention adding it. Could you tell me when to add it, please??
