DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 375°F Combine cookie crumbs and melted butter in small bowl; press onto bottom and up sides of ungreased 9-inch glass pie pan. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or just until set. Cool completely.
  • Combine all glaze ingredients in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and comes to a boil (4 to 6 minutes). Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  • Combine 1/3 cup sugar, cream cheese and 1 tablespoon lemon peel in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Beat whipping cream in another medium bowl until stiff peaks form; gently stir into cream cheese mixture. Spoon into cooled crust. Make deep swirls in cream cheese mixture with back of teaspoon.
  • Spoon glaze mixture over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until set (at least 2 hours).
  • Recipe Tip: To make it easier to squeeze juice, heat lemon in microwave oven on HIGH (100% power) for about 20 seconds.
