Creamy Cheesecake

This cheesecake is creamier than most cheesecakes, and very easy to make. Use grated lemon zest or 1 teaspoon lemon extract for flavoring.

Creamy Cheesecake


  • 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2 Beat softened cream cheese slightly. Add eggs, sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest. Beat until light and fluffy. Pour mixture into crust.

3 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until firm, about 25 minutes. Let cheesecake cool then top with cherry or blueberry pie filling, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours before serving.
