Rose Mary's notes for this recipe:
This is the Cheesecake that I made for my husband's birthday, he told me he wanted a Cheesecake instead of a regular cake, and this is the one I came up with. He was very impressed with the smooth & Creamy texture. Even remarked that it tasted a lot like the Cheesecake Factory, so I knew that was his way of saying that he really liked it. So it has been a family favorite for quite a few years now.

Directions

1
FOR THE CRUST: Preheat oven 375 degrees F. Toast pecans in preheated oven for 5 -7 minutes. Cool. Mix cooled nuts with remaining ingredients and press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch spring form pan. FREEZE AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BEFORE FILLING.
2
TO MAKE THE FILLING: Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
3
Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour vanilla, and lemon zest on medium speed until well mixed.
4
Add sour cream and mix again. Add eggs one at a time and mix on low speed, after each addition, just until blended.
5
Pour into prepared crust. Bake one hour and ten minutes to one hour 15 minutes or until golden brown around edges and center is a little jiggly.
6
Remove from oven and run knife around sides of pan, BUT DO NOT REMOVE SIDES OF PAN. Cool on wire rack about 1 1/2 hours. REMOVE sides of pan. Refrigerate 4-6 hours, preferably overnight. Top with chilled pie filling just before serving.

Note: This was the first time I made what I considered a perfect cheesecake, and it has been my favorite recipe ever since. The neighbors was glad I shared it with them.

Thank you Cindy, yes he did feel special, and he really loved the cheesecake. Just realized I misspelled York, I better correct that. Thanks for the compliments. I am working on trying up a watergate cake recipe, but I am also doing dinner, and I need to run to the store, so I will get it up before the night ends.
