Ingredients

Graham Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups graham crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted

Cheesecake

  • 24 ounces full-fat cream cheese brick-style, not in a tub
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Garnish

  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh berries

Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust

  • Stir together the graham crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.
  • Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch spring-form pan so that it's packed tightly.
  • Place in the freezer as you make the cheesecake layer.

Cheesecake Layer

  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  • Beat in the sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla extract. 
  • In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until evenly incorporated.
  • Spoon the batter over the cheesecake crust, and smooth the top flat.
  • Lightly cover the pan, and chill in the fridge for at least 6 hours to set before serving.
  • When ready to serve, gently trace around the edges of the springform with a very thin, sharp knife. Unclamp the springform.
  • Top with whipped cream and berries, or your favorite cheesecake toppings. Store leftovers in the fridge.
