  • Cut two large pieces of foil and lay them on your work surface in a cross.

  • The foil gives you extra protection against water getting into the pan during the water bath step.
  • In a large mixer-bowl or bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until it is smooth and there are no lumps.
  • Add the sour cream,sugar,cornstarch,lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla to the bowl and beat on medium-low speed until combined and creamy.

  • Next add the eggs, one at a time, beating slowly until everything is combined.
