1 cup graham cracker crumbs

2 tablespoons granulated sugar (for the crust)

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened

1 cup granulated sugar (for the filling)

3 large eggs

1 cup white chocolate chips, melted and cooled

Zest and juice of 2 lemons

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Combine graham cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar, and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then cool.

Beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in white chocolate, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla. Pour over crust.

Bake for 50-60 minutes. The center should set but jiggle slightly. Cool for 10 minutes, then loosen edges with a knife. Cool completely before chilling for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Variations & Tips

Feel free to experiment with different citrus like lime or orange for a unique twist. Consider adding chopped nuts to the crust for extra crunch. For a flawless cheesecake, use room-temperature ingredients and resist opening the oven during baking. Patience is key—allow the cheesecake to cool gradually.

The Legacy

This Lemon White Chocolate Cheesecake is more than just a dessert; it's a testament to the beauty of combining simple, high-quality ingredients into something extraordinary. From my kitchen to yours, enjoy the warmth and love baked into every slice.
