Step by Step Method
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
Have ready a 9 x 13 x 2 inch square baking pan that has been lined with aluminum foil across the bottom and up two opposite sides of the pan. Set aside.
Graham Cracker Crust: In a small bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.
Press mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Increase the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Cheesecake Filling: With a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Add the sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated.
Pour the cheesecake filling over the graham cracker base and bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheesecake batter is just set.
Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
Place in the refrigerator for a few hours to make the squares easier to cut.
To cut into squares - place on a cutting board, remove the foil, and with a sharp knife, cut into 2 inch squares.
