For the Graham Cracker Crust

  • 9 graham cracker sheets about one package
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted

For the Filling


For the Crust

  • Place your graham crackers in a blender or food processor and blend until you have very fine crumbs with no larger pieces. You can also place the crackers in an airtight bag and use your hands or a rolling pin to crush them.
  • Then, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Stir until combined. Press into the bottom of a springform pan or pie plate. Place in the freezer until you are ready to fill it.

For the Filling

  • In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese with a hand mixer or stand mixer until it is light and fluffy.  This is more easily achieved if your cream cheese is softened to room temperature.
  • Add powdered sugar and granulated sugar. Mix until combined. Add sour cream, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Mix until combined, making sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the whipping cream with a hand mixer or stand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream mixture into the cream cheese mixture. DO NOT MIX WITH MIXER. You want to keep as much air in the whipped cream as possible. Use a spatula and scrape the bottom and edges until the mixture is combined.
  • Now, pour the filling into the crust and smooth the top. Chill in the fridge for 24 hours.
  • Serve with fresh berries or a topping of your choice.
