Cake mix is the secret to an easy press-in-the-pan cookie-like crust and a foolproof cream cheese filling.

Ingredients

Crust

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
1/4
cup vegetable oil
1
egg
1
teaspoon grated lemon peel

Filling

2
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
3/4
cup sugar
3
containers (3.5 oz each) lemon pudding (from 4-pack container)
1/2
cup sour cream
3
eggs
2
cups Cool Whip™ frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 300°F. Spray bottom and side of 10-inch springform pan with baking spray with flour. Wrap foil around outside of pan to catch drips. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cake mix; set aside. In large bowl, beat remaining cake mix, oil, 1 egg and lemon peel with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Press in bottom and 1 inch up side of pan.
  • 2 In same large bowl, beat reserved cake mix, the cream cheese, sugar, pudding and sour cream on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Beat in 3 eggs, one at a time, until mixed. Pour over crust.
  • 3 Bake 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 35 minutes or until edges are set but center of cheesecake jiggles slightly when moved. Turn oven off; open oven door at least 4 inches. Leave cheesecake in oven 30 minutes longer.
  • 4 Remove cheesecake from oven; place on cooling rack. Without releasing side of pan, run knife around edge of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cool in pan on cooling rack 30 minutes. Cover loosely; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Remove side of pan before serving. Pipe or spoon whipped topping around outside edge of cheesecake. Store covered in refrigerator.

Tips  

If you don’t have a fresh lemon to grate peel for the crust, just omit it. There is still plenty of lemon flavor in the cheesecake.

For clean cuts when serving the cheesecake, dip a sharp knife in hot water and dry on a paper towel before each cut.
