Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Position the oven racks so that one is above the middle position and the other is below the middle position. Lightly spray a 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Adding lemon juice and blend to smooth. Adding eggs and mix until mixed. Do not over mix as this may cause the cheesecake to crack while baking. The extra air being beaten into the filling will cause cracks.
Pour cheesecake filling over crust, spreading evenly.
Place a metal or glass bowl on the lower rack of the oven and pour 3 cups of boiling water.
Immediately location the cheesecake at the pinnacle rack and bake for 55-sixty five minutes, till the cheesecake is ready across the edges. You can expect  slight crunch in the center of cheesecake.
When the cheesecake is done, turn off the oven and keep the oven door open about 4 inches.
The cheesecake is kept in the oven for an hour, until it cools completely.
It is best to refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, whisk together the cream and powdered sugar until thick and creamy. Spread the whipped cream evenly over the cheesecake or spread it around the edges.
You can also put a spoon on it. Garnish with lemon slices or lime zest
