  • 9 crushed graham crackers
  • 3 1/2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 8oz packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • fresh strawberries


Mix the crushed graham crackers with the butter. Take the mixture and press it firmly and evenly on the bottom of a well-greased baking pan.  Bake for about 10 minutes on 325F and than set aside.

With an electric mixer beat together the sugar, cream cheese, lemon juice, and lemon peel.  Next, add the sour cream and beat until well mixed. On a low speed, add the eggs, one at a time. Pour into the crust. Bake for about 40 minutes on 350F. Once the center is almost set, take the pan out of the oven and let cool.

Cut the strawberries into thin slices and place on cheesecake. Enjoy and have a great Mother’s Day!
