Serves 12 | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup Ritz or butter crackers, crushed

3 tablespoons melted butter

2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, room temperature

3 eggs

1/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons grated onion

1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

2 drops Tabasco sauce, or to taste

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup lump crabmeat, canned

1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Mix together the cracker crumbs and butter and use the mixture to line a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Reduce the oven to 325ºF.

With an electric mixer, beat together until fluffy the cream cheese, eggs, and 1/4 cup sour cream. Add the lemon juice, onion, Old Bay seasoning, Tabasco, and black pepper. Stir in the crabmeat and mix well. Pour into the cooled crust and bake 50 minutes until the cake sets. Remove from the oven. Run a knife around the edge of the cake, loosening it from the pan. Cool on a wire rack. Remove the sides of the pan. Spread the cake with the sour cream.
