World’s simplest cheese cake!!

I came up with this recipe as an undergraduate at Cornell University, and gave it to my roommate, Kenny R.  I then proceeded to lose the recipe, only to get it back from Kenny years later.  Since then, I’ve made this delicious, creamy cheese cake for numerous Mardi Gras events, and it never fails to get eaten!

19 oz cream cheese

1 c sugar

3 eggs, added 1 at a time

1 T lemon juice

1 t vanilla

Pour into a 9″ graham cracker crust and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, let cool and ENJOY!!
