Cheesecake Crust

Cheesecake Crust Recipe

A light and crunchy compliment to your cheesecake.

Crust Ingredients

  • 1 cup sifted enriched flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 slightly beaten egg yoke
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla


Combine first three ingredients. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Add the egg yoke and vanilla; blend well. Crisco the bottom and sides of the pan.
Pat 1/3 of the dough on bottom of 9″ spring-form pan (sides removed). Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes.or until golden; cool. Attach sides to bottom and pat the remaining dough on sides to a height of 1 3/4 inches.
Tip: I found that making a double batch of crust worked better for me.
