Double Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely crushed NILLA Wafers
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 3 pkg. (8 oz. each) brick cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat  oven to 325°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Mix crumbs, 3 Tbsp. sugar and the butter; press firmly onto bottom of pan. Bake 10 min.
  • Separate  one of the eggs. Cover and refrigerate egg yolk for later use. Set egg white aside. Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, the flour, lemon zest, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and the vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add egg white and remaining 3 whole eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over crust.
  • Bake  50 to 55 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  • Mix  3/4 cup sugar and cornstarch in medium saucepan; gradually stir in 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup juice until well blended. Bring just to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly; cook and stir until clear and thickened. Beat reserved egg yolk lightly with fork. Stir in 2 Tbsp. of the hot cornstarch mixture. Return to remaining cornstarch mixture in saucepan; mix until well blended. Cook 1 min. or until thickened, stirring constantly. Cool slightly. Spoon glaze over cheesecake. Refrigerate until set.
