4. Add one egg at a time and beat after each egg.



5. Add flour, vanilla and lemon juice, mix well.



6. Add the sour cream and beat well.



7. Pour cream cheese mixture into the springform pan.



8. Place on the top rack in the middle of a 325 degrees preheated oven for one hour and 15 minutes.



9. When time is up turn oven off, prop open oven door and leave in oven for one hour.



10. Remove from oven and let cool then refrigerate for 24 hours.



11. Remember this important tip : A cheesecake should season. The wait is worth it. The flavor ripens and becomes enriched.
