1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
OR 3/4 Zwieback toasts crushed

1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz.)
1/16 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 beaten eggs


1/2 pint sour cream
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix crust ingredients. Pack most of it into a spring form pan, reserving some for the topping. "Cream" the cream cheese, add sugar, eggs, lemon juice and salt. Pour onto the crust. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Blend the sour cream, sugar and vanilla. Spread over the cake, top with remaining crumbs. Return to a 475 oven for 10 minutes. Cool before serving.

Personal Notes:
When I was a young teenager in California I worked for a time as a "mother's helper" for a Jewish woman. Besides my duties to care for her two year old son I did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen after her frequent entertaining of guests. She served much more "exotic" meals than I was used to. This was my introduction to Cheese Cake -- I loved it from the start. Getting some of her recipes proved to be better pay for my efforts than the generous (for that time) 35 cents an hour I made working for her. I'll spare you her recipe for "chopped chicken liver patee."
