As other reviews state, the crust comes out hard and thick if following recipe exactly. Easy to make your own graham cracker crust: 1.5 C graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 C sugar, 1/3 C melted butter. Cake is good consistency but not really like a cheesecake - something was off. And you should definitely add about 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice and some lemon peel or else there won't be any lemon flavor (what's the point of a lemon cheesecake that doesn't taste like lemon?). I recommend Betty Crocker's other 2 lemon cheesecake recipes "Lemon Curd Cheesecake" and "Lemon Cheesecake with Fresh Berry Topping" - the Lemon Curd one is especially good made with a graham cracker crust. Ditch this recipe!
