    Directions:

    1. 1
      *If you can't get Meyer lemons, mix equal parts fresh orange and fresh lemon juice to approximate their sweet fragrance and flavor.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 325°; grease a 9-inch springform pan with 3-inch sides.
    3. 3
      Crust: in a bowl, combine the cookie crumbs and butter; press into bottom of cheesecake pan and freeze.
    4. 4
      Filling: in a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar on med-high speed for 3 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
    6. 6
      Mix in zest, juice, and vanilla; pour over frozen crust.
    7. 7
      Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the top is light brown and the center has a slight jiggle to it.

      Cool on the counter for 10 minutes (do not turn the oven off); the cake will sink slightly.

      LOVE this recipe! It is my go-it cheesecake for get togethers at church or work. EVERYONE asks for the recipe. The secret to a great cheesecake is to use a crust that pairs well with the cheesecake - never use graham cracker as it is too strong a taste and it overpowers the subtle flavor of a really good cheesecake. For this cheesecake I make my own lemon wafers cutting the sugar in half. Too much sugar in the crust and it will crystallize when you bake it making the crust hard as a rock. Using the substitute of orange and lemon juice works well if there are no Meyer lemons to be had. Also - NEVER beat the cream cheese on med-high - always low and slow to prevent air from being whipped into the batter. Fewer cracks that way! AND putting a pan of water in the oven for a steam bath while it cooks is always a good idea.
