I think I got this recipe from food network long time ago, I don’t remember whose recipe it is now.
For the crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (10 crackers)
1table spoon sugar
6table spoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted.
For the filling:
2 1/2 pounds cream cheese, at room temperature.
1 1/2 cups sugar
5 whole extra-large eggs, at room temperature
2extra large eggs yolks, at room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream
1 table spoon grated lemon zest (2 lemons)
1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
To make the crust, combine the graham crackers, sugar and melted butter until moistened, pour into a 9 inch spring form pan. With your hands press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and about I inch sides, bake for 8 minutes, cool to room temperature.
Raise the oven temperature to 450 degree F. To make the filling, cream the cream cheese and sugar attachment on medium- high speed until light and fluffy about 5 minutes. Reduce the speed of the mixer to medium and add the eggs and egg yolks, 2 at a time, mixing well. Scrape down the bowl and beater as necessary. With the mixer on low, add the sour cream, lemon zest, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly and pour into the cooled crust.
Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the oven temperature down to 225 degree F and bake for another 1 hour and 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and open the door wide. The cake will not be completely set in the center. Allow the cake to sit in the oven with the door open for 30 minutes. Take the cake out of the oven and allow it to sit at room temperature for another 2 to 3 hours until completely cooled, wrap and refrigerate overnight. Remove the cake from the spring pan by carefully running a hot knife around the outside of the cake, leaving the cake on the bottom of the spring form for serving
