"I just came across this recipe I had put away and decided to make it again, it's really a simple recipe that always brings great results, it's sort of like a cheescake recipe for beginners, I'm not a beginner baker but I love the ease of this and it always turns out great! Make your own crust or purchase a ready made one."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Set the rack to the second from the bottom. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until thick and light yellow. Add in sugar and the flour, beating until blended. Pour the egg mixture into a measuring cup.

Step 2

In the same bowl, beat cream cheese with sour cream and 1/3 cup of the evaporated milk until smooth. Add remaining 1/3 cup evaporated milk, lemon juice, and the grated lemon peel; beat until smooth and well blended. Pour egg mixture into the cream cheese mixture; beat until blended.

Step 3

Pour mixture into the graham cracker crust almost to the top this won't rise very much.

Step 4

Place onto a large cookie sheet. (I always seem to have about 1/2 cup of the mixture that will not fit into the pan, I just spoon it out of the bowl an eat it).
