    1 1/4   c            Graham cracker crumbs
    3       tb           Melted butter
 
   Crust:

   springform pan
   
   Filling: 4 8 oz pkg cream cheese (softenend) 4 eggs 1
   1/4 cups sugar 1 Tbll lemon juice 2 tsp vanilla
   
   Beat cream cheese till soft.  Add sugar, eggs, lemon
   and vanilla. Spoon over crust. Bake at 350 for approx
   55 mins (sometimes I go up to 1 hr 10 mins) Remove
   from oven and let stand for 15 mins.  Keep oven on.
   
   Topping: 2 cups sour cream 1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla
   
   Combine in bowl and refrigerate while cake is baking
   
   After cake cools for the 15 mins, spoon topping over
   top and  return to oven for 5 mins. Let cool and
   refrigerate for AT LEAST 24 hours (this is VERY
   important) Can top w/fruit and glaze if desired.
   
   This goes together very fast and is an oft requested
