- Preheat oven to 375°. Generously grease a 10-inch springform pan.
- Beat cream cheese and butter together until creamy. Blend in the sour cream. Add the flour, lemon juice, and vanilla; beat until well blended.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Pour into the prepared springform pan.
- Wrap the bottom and sides of the pan with heavy duty foil.
- Set the wrapped pan in a larger pan.
- Add about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of hot water to the outer pan.
- Bake for about 1 hour, or until set. The cheesecake is set but will still jiggle slightly. Turn the oven off and open the oven door slightly.
- Let the cheesecake cool in the oven for about 1 hour.
- Remove and let stand on a rack for 2 hours. Loosen the rim of the pan and let the cake cool completely before removing the rim.
- Serve with warm cherry pie filling, a dessert sauce, or a fresh fruit sauce.
