  3. Mix together egg and sour cream.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese and butter. Once smooth add to egg / cream mixture. Mix well and stop to scrape down the sides of bowl as often as needed.
  5. Slowly mix in sugar, cornstarch vanilla and lemon juice. Mixture should be smooth with no lumps. Remove bowl from mixer and tap on the counter until no bubbles appear.

    With pan – take a larger pan. Fill it with at least 3-5cm depending on the height of your cheesecake pan. Place the cheesecake pan in the middle. Place bot into the oven.
  8. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the middle of the cheesecake wobbles like jello but is not liquid. Turn off oven, partially open the oven door and leave the cheesecake inside for at least 2 hours.
  9. After 2 hours remove from the oven and water bath and place the cheesecake pan in the fridge for 6 hours, or for better results, overnight.

  11. Remove the baking sheet, place another cake card on the cookie crumb and flip right side up. Remove cake card from the top. Add decorations or a delicious strawberry coulis
