DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 325°F.
  • Set oven rack to second-lowest position.
  • Butter an 11 x 7-inch baking pan (can also be made in an 13 x 9-inch pan).
  • In a small bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, pecans, sugar, melted butter and cinnamon (if using) mix well to combine (you may use just a regular graham cracker crust or a vanilla wafer crust for this).
  • Set aside about 1/2 cup of crumbs for topping.
  • Press the remaining crumbs lightly into prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 6 minutes.
  • Remove and cool on wire rack.
  • With an electric mixer beat cream cheese in a large bowl until fluffy (about 3 minutes) then add in yellow food colouring (if using).
  • Add in sweetened condensed milk and sour cream.
  • Add in eggs; beat until just combined.
  • Add in lemon juice and zest.
  • Spoon the mixture into crust.
  • Sprinkle with reserved crumbs.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until set (it really should not take much more than 30 minutes to bake).
  • Cool on wire rack for 1 hour.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 hours before serving.
