Graham Cracker Crust

  • 3 cups (306g) graham cracker crumbs about 18 sheets/36 squares
  • cup (67g) granulated sugar
  • 11 tablespoons (155g) unsalted or salted butter melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt only if using unsalted butter


  • 2 8-ounce blocks 450g) cream cheese room temperature (do not use low-fat)
  • 14 ounces (1 can/397g) sweetened condensed milk (regular, not low fat)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup (59ml) lemon juice
  • Berries or pie filling for topping


  • Place graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a large bowl and stir using a fork. The mixture will resemble wet sand. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-10” springform pan. Chill at least 10 minutes before filling.
  • Beat cream cheese until smooth using a hand or a stand mixer. Add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and lemon juice and mix until smooth and no lumps remain. Pour into prepared crust. Chill at least 4 hours before serving so the mixture can set.
  • Top with berries or your favorite pie filling. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cheesecake can be made 1 day in advance, but don’t top it until ready to serve. It can also be frozen.


If it's having trouble solidifying, freeze for 2 hours.
