Method

Crust

Filling

Reduce oven temperature to 160°C. In large bowl, beat cream cheese to soften, then whisk in sour cream. Whisk in SPLENDA® Granulated, then eggs, until smooth. Whisk in lemon juice and zest and pour over cooled crust.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until filling no longer jiggles when pan is moved. Cool to room temperature, then cool for at least 4 hours before slicing.
