DIRECTIONS

  • mix crust ingredients and press into a 9 or 10 in springform pan.
  • grease sides of pan with melted butter- this is important!
  • preheat oven to 325 with a baking dish of water on the bottom rack (move to lowest position) and move upper rack to second highest position.
  • beat cream cheese, adding sugar at medium low speed. scrape sides as needed (if you have a mixer with paddle attachment, use it!) until smooth.
  • on low speed add milk until combined.
  • add eggs one at a time until combined.
  • add lemon, vanilla and sour cream.
  • sift in flour and cornstarch, mix just until combined (still on low).
  • pour into crust.
  • bake on higher rack- DON'T open oven before one hour ever!
  • check on it at 1 hour 5 minutes, if it's set outside but jiggles, not liquid, but definitely shakes) inside, it's done. it usually will need 1 hour 15 minutes at least. the edges should be just turning golden.
  • TURN OFF oven leave door closed, no more peeking for at least one hour, preferably 3.
  • refrigerate overnight for best taste.
