I absolutely love this cheesecake recipe, my Mom gave it to me and it's always a hit.


1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 walnuts
3/4 cup vanilla wafers
1 tablespoon melted butter


3 (8oz) packages cream cheese
16oz sour cream
5 eggs
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons vanilla

In a food processor mix together the walnuts, almonds, pecans and vanilla wafers. Pulse a few times then add the melted butter

should look like this

In a 9in spring form pan press the crust into the pan; make sure the sides are covered

To make the filling (make sure all ingredients are at room temperature). Mix the cream cheese together on low until light and fluffy

add the sugar a little at a time until all incorporated

Add each egg one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

add the flour


lemon juice

once everything is mixed well add the sour cream. Mix completely

 Pour the mixture into the pan; bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. After that time is up turn the oven off and prop the door open for 1 hour.

once that hour is up remove from the oven and let sit for another hour before releasing the spring form. Refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.


  1. I haven't made J a cheesecake in a couple of years. Usually I use the Lindie's cheesecake recipe. I'll have to try this one next time.

  2. It took a long time for me to like cheesecake. Then I had it once about six years ago and was like "OMG ... why haven't I eaten this before!?"
    I love using Nilla wafers as the crust too!
