Directions:
In a mixer, cream butter and cream cheese. Add sugar and eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add cornstarch, vanilla and lemon juice and mix. Add sour cream and mix well. Pour mixture into greased 10-inch pring form pan. Place this pan inside a larger pan like a roasting pan. Fill the larger pan with water nearly to the top. Bake at 350 degrees untill golden brown. The length of time will vary from oven to oven--I cook it about 1 hour and 20 min. until it rises high and is golden brown. When cheese cake is done, turn the ovenn off and leave it in the oven for 30 minutes more with out opening the door. Cool on counter after removing spring form pan from larger pan and then refridgerate overnight. (Do not eliminate this step). Unmold from the spring form pan just prior to serving. Great plain or with cherry or blueberry pie filling on top.
