16ozcream cheese(2 8oz/250g packages) room temperature
1cupsour cream or plain Greek yogurt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line 20 muffin cups with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Divide between liners and press into the bottom firmly. Bake for 10 minutes until dry in the center. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add the sugar, sour cream, eggs, lemon juice, vanilla, and salt and beat on medium-high speed until smooth, 2-3 minutes.
Divide evenly between muffin cups (they should be about almost full). Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the centers are nearly set.
Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 20-30 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours until chilled before serving as desired.
