2 1/4 cups (302g) graham cracker crumbs
10 tbsp (140g) salted butter, melted
3 tbsp (39g) sugar
24 ounces (678g) cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup (207g) sugar
3 tbsp (24g) all purpose flour
1 cup (230g) sour cream, room temperature
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp grated lemon zest (2–3 medium lemons)
4 large eggs, room temperature
8 tbsp (90ml) lemon juice (3–4 medium lemons)
4 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 cup (104g) sugar
8 large egg yolks
1/4 cup (56g) salted butter
1 cup (207g) sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large egg whites
1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper in the bottom and grease the sides.
2. Combine the crust ingredients in a small bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the springform pan.
3. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
4. Cover the outsides of the pan with aluminum foil so that water from the water bath cannot get in (see how I prepare my pan for a water bath). Set prepared pan aside.
