Instructions

  4. To make the cake, in a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese until very smooth, about 3 minutes. Gradually add remaining 1 cup sugar, beating until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Beat in the egg whites, lemon zest and juice, and remaining 1 teaspoon of vanilla until blended.
  5. Pour the batter over the crust. Bake until the edge of the cheesecake is set and the center jiggles slightly, 55 – 60 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes.
