Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix the graham crackers, pecans, and 1/3 cup of sugar in a bowl, and mash the softened margarine into the crumbs until thoroughly combined. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a 10-inch springform pan. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, 2 cups of sugar, eggs, and lemon juice together with an electric mixer set on medium speed until fluffy and well blended; spoon the mixture on top of the crumbs.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1 hour and 10 minutes; remove from oven, and let cool for 30 minutes. Mix the sour cream, 1/2 cup of sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; top the cheesecake with the sour cream mixture. Return to oven, and bake 10 more minutes. Allow to chill in refrigerator at least 4 hours to set.

Tasted great! This is the first home made cheese cake I made. Topped it with caramel sauce and everyone loved it. I added tbs more vanilla to the sour cream. I won't add as much our cream next time it over powers the cheese cake.

Wowee! We made this for a party today and everyone loved it. Being a cheesecake fan, I have tried many, but this one was absolutely fabulous! We had blueberry topping, but I ate mine without and it was so creamy and silky. The crust is amazing with the pecans. A new favorite for our family. Thanks for sharing!!
