  • 16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 1 tsp., optional
  • 3 large, lightly beaten eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 9-inch prebaked graham cracker crust
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1 pint blackberries for garnish, optional


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar with an electric mixer on medium until smooth. Add eggs, lemon juice and 1 tsp. vanilla; beat until blended. Pour into crust. Bake until edges are set and center jiggles a bit, about 30 minutes.

In a medium bowl, stir sour cream, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Remove cheesecake from oven; let cool 5 minutes. Spread sour cream mixture on top and return to oven. Bake until topping is firm, about 15 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes on a wire rack, then cover and chill 4 hours or overnight.

If desired, place half of blackberries in a medium bowl, sprinkle with 1 tsp. sugar and lightly mash. Let stand 10 minutes. Arrange all berries on cheesecake.
