FILLING:

  • Use a mixer or beater to beat the cream cheese until smooth – about 30 seconds on medium high,.

  • Add vanilla, sour cream, sugar and lemon zest. Beat until just combined (10 – 15 sec).

  • Bake for 55 minutes. The top should be a very light golden brown, not cracked, It should jiggle slightly when you gently shake the pan.
  • Cool the cake in the oven with the door open, then refrigerate for 4 hours+ in the pan.

OX`s Notes:

  1. Cool in oven: This helps stop the surface from cracking.
  2. Place Baking :Paper over the top while baking,
