Ingredients

Crust

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped vanilla wafers
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 1/2 pounds cream cheese
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Instructions

Cheesecake Crust

  • Blend all the nuts and chopped vanilla wafers into the melted butter and press the mixture into a buttered springform pan. Line the mixture about 1 1/2” up the sides of the pan and set aside.

Cheesecake Fillling

  • Keep your mixer on the low setting throughout the mixing process.
    Beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the sugar a little at a time and continue beating until the mixture is creamy. Add one egg at a time and beat after each egg. 
  • When the eggs have been mixed into the cream cheese, add the flour, lemon juice, and vanilla and mix well. Lastly, add the sour cream and beat well.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture into the springform pan. Place on the top rack in the middle of a 325 degree preheated oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. When the baking is finished. Turn off the oven. Prop open the oven door and let the cheesecake sit in the oven for 1 hour. 
  • Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool enough to put into the refrigerator for 24 hours. A cheesecake should be allowed to season in order for the flavor to ripen and become enriched. The wait will be worth it!
