Let's learn how to prepare the crust for the cheesecake. Make small pieces of the graham's crackers. Put them in a food processor and grind for about 10 seconds. Put those crushed crackers, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and melted butter into a bowl and mix well, until the pieces of crackers get a wet appearance. Now prepare the pan. For that, line a springform pan with 1 tablespoon melted butter and then put the crushed cracker mixture over it. Make a fine layer by pressing the crackers on the pan, using a flat bottomed apparatus (a cup probably). To make equal layer at the outer side of the crust, use a flatware tablespoon. Bake this crust into oven at 325°F, until it turns golden brown. Bring it out and place on a cool wire rack.

While it is getting cooled, prepare for the filling of the cheesecake. Take a large bowl and put chunks of cream cheese in it and beat it with a blender until the cheese gets really smooth (2-3 minutes). Afterward add salt and one third of the sugar into it. Beat for a while and repeat the procedure with the remaining sugar and continue beating. Remember, you have to mix the sugar in 3 installments. Add lemon juice and vanilla extract and beat and add cream and while beating add egg yolks and whole eggs. (remember to continue beating). Now put this mixture on the cooled crust, evenly. Put the cake pan on a sheet pan and bake in the preheated oven at 500°F. Reduce the temperature to 200°F after 10 minutes of baking. Now bake the cheesecake for 1½ hours. To set the cake fully, place it in the refrigerator for half hour and serve cheesecake slices and serve with any of your favorite topping.
