=== 🍽🍸🥩 RECIPE ===
36 gingersnap cookies, ground to crumbs
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter
2 pounds (900g) cream cheese
8 ounces (240g) sour cream
3 large eggs
8 ounces (220g) granulated sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon extract
To make the crust:
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)
Using a food processor, grind the gingersnaps down to crumbs. (If you don’t have a food processor, place the gingersnaps in a zip-top bag and crush them with a rolling pin or heavy pan until reduced to crumbs.)
Place crumbs in a bowl and add the sugar and melted butter. Mix to combine.
Spray the springform pan with cooking spray. Transfer the crumbs to the bottom of the springform pan. Smooth to an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
To make the filling:
In a large bowl, add the cream cheese and sugar. Mix on medium speed until smooth and fluffy.
Then add the sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon extract. Mix well to combine.
While the mixer is still on, add the eggs one at a time, mixing in between each one until well combined.
Pour the batter into the springform pan, and smooth out the top if needed.
Place the springform pan in a large roasting pan that has a rack.
Add 1 inch (2.5cm) of hot water to the roasting pan.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until the center is just set.
Turn off the oven and crack the oven door. Let the cheesecake sit in the oven for another hour. Remove from the oven and water bath and cool on a wire rack. Once completely cooled, cover tightly and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
