2 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c. sugar
10 T. butter, melted
3-8oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1 1/4 c. sugar
3 T. fresh lemon juice
1 t. vanilla
1 T. grated lemon peel
1 lemon, sliced paper-thin
3 c. water, divided
1 c. sugar
2 T. plus 2 t. cornstarch
1/3 c. fresh lemon juice

For crust, combine all ingredients and press into the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Cool. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese at medium high speed until smooth. Add eggs, on at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add sugar, then lemon juice and vanilla. Mix well. Fold in lemon peel; pour into crust. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature; refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 4 hours. For the glaze, remove any seeds from lemon slices. Reserve 1 slice for garnish; coarsely chop remaining slices. Place in a saucepan with 2 c. water. Bring to a boil; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Drain and discard liquid. In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in remaining water, lemon juice and lemon pulp. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil 3 minutes. Chill until cool, stirring occasionally. Pour over cheesecake and garnish with reserved lemon slice. Chill until ready to serve.
