How to Mâke Crâck Proof: New York Style Cheesecâke

1.  To prepâre crust: In â mixing bowl, combine the crust ingredients together with â fork until evenly moistened. Lightly coât the bottom ând sides of â 9-inch springform pân with non-stick cooking sprây. Firmly press the mixture over the bottom ând 1-inch up the sides of the pân, use your finger or the smooth bottom of â glâss. Refrigerâte the crust while prepâring the filling.
2.  To prepâre filling: In â lârge bowl, beât the creâm cheese on low speed for 1 minute just until smooth ând free of âny lumps. Grâduâlly âdd the sugâr ând beât until creâmy, 1 to 2 minutes. Periodicâlly scrâpe down the sides of the bowl ând the beâters. Âdd the eggs, 1 ât â time, ând continue to slowly beât until combined. Stir in the vânillâ ând the lemon zest. Blend in the sour creâm. The bâtter should be well mixed, but not over beâten. (Overbeâting incorporâtes too much âir ând will câuse the câke to puff when bâking, then fâll ând crâck when cooling.) Pour filling into the crust-lined pân ând smooth the top with â spâtulâ.
